Wat Rajanadda

Across Th Mahachai from Wat Saket, Wat Rajanadda (Ratchanatda) dates from the mid-19th century. It was built under Rama III and is an unusual specimen, possibly in fluenced by Burmese models.

The wát has a well known market selling Buddhist amulets or magic charms (phráphim) in all sizes, shapes and styles. The amulets not only feature images of the Buddha, but also famous Thai monks and Indian deities. Full Buddha images are also for sale. Wat Rajanadda is an expensive place to purchase a charm, but a good place to look.
