Wat Yan Nawa 1.0 rating

  Cultural Attractions

This temple originally dates from the Ayutthaya Period, when it was known as Wat Kok Khwai. It was completely reconstructed by King Rama III in the early nineteenth century, and he renamed the temple Wat Yan Nawa (Boat Temple). The main feature of this temple is the base of the temple, that is shaped like a Chinese junk with two pagodas functioning as its masts. King Rama III saw that steam ships were slowly replacing old junks, and wanted the people to remember how much wealth they had brought to Siam. In the early nineteenth century, Chinese people started moving to the area, and the temple is still popular among the Chinese community residing there.
