Wat Yan Nawa

Wat Yan Nawa (Thai: วัดยานนาวา) is an old Buddhist temple (wat) dating back to the Ayutthaya period, located in the Sathon district of Bangkok on Charoen Krung Road, Bangkok, Thailand. It has a unique junk shaped chedi and viharn built by King Rama III. The idea behind the construction was that Chinese junk was quickly disappearing and the pagoda should show present descendants what it looked like. The temple was known as Wat Kok Khwai (วัดคอกควาย) during Ayutthaya era and Wat Kok Krabue (วัดคอกกระบือ) during Thonburi and early Bangkok era before the construction of the chedi.

Travel around Wat Yannawa[edit]

Wat Yan Nawa can be accessed easily through the Chao Phraya River and ferries that travel across the river towards the Taksin Pier (Pepsi Pier). If you want to travel by bus, it has many buses through Wat Yannawa such as 1, 75, 15, and 504. If you are not comfortable with bus rides, you can go by BTS (Bangkok Mass Transit System) and get down at Saphan Taksin Station. You will see a sign that tells you to go to Wat Yan Nawa. On the other hand, you can go to the market around wat Yannawa to see various products. If you like a new shopping experience, I suggest ASIATIQUE The Riverfront, which is located on Charoen Krung Road near Assalapheyah Mosque. In case of emergency, hospital (Lert Sin) and a police station (Wat Phraya Krai) are just near Wat Yannawa too.
