The Giant Swing dates back to 1784 and was made by an ancient King named Rama to protect the 13th-century bronze Image of the Buddha. The swing was recrafted in 2004.

In addition to the Giant Swing, the Outer Walls have one hundred and fifty-six images of the Buddha topped with complex carvings at its entry gates. As you explore these fascinating temples a fine choice of accommodation would be a Sathon hotel the likes of Chatrium Residence Sathon Bangkok.

The frescoes in the interior walls depict the previous reincarnations of the Buddha. The outer walls are lined with Chinese sculptures in stone and eight levelled six sided Pagodas.
