Wat Thepthidaram in Bangkok

Wat Thepthidaram is a Buddhist temple 2.6 km walking distance from Bangkok’s former main railway station, Hua Lamphong. Wat Thepthidaram is one of the lesser visited temples which is surprising because it has some unique features and it is very close to more famous temples such as the Golden Mount, Wat Suthat Thepwararam and the magnificent Loha Prasat.

The thing which this temple is best known for is having been home to Sunthorn Phu for 2 years when he lived there as an ordained monk in the mid 19th Century. Sunthorn Phu is widely considered to Thailand’s greatest writer whose epic poems are both works of art and important historical accounts of the period. The temple has a small museum dedicated to Sunthorn Phu.

The other two things notable things this temple has are a White Buddha statue, which was unique in the era that it was created, and its statues of female nuns listening to the Lord Buddha giving a sermon. The Buddhist church in Thailand is traditionally patriarchal and does not recognise women as monks in the same way as men. The statues of the nuns studying with the Lord Buddha is a powerful statement, especially during the 19th Century. The temple was under the patronage of the eldest daughter of King Rama III which most likely explains why this temple has a shrine openly expressing feminist ideology.
