Wat Suthat Bangkok(The Giant Swing)
Wat Suthat, which was started by King Rama I in 1807, lasted for at least 30 years. When you look at the walls of the temple, you will see many artistic pictures telling Buddha.
The Giant Swing at the front of the building is a place where Brahmin priests perform various rituals at the time.
