Wat Mangkon station (Thai: สถานีวัดมังกร) is a Bangkok MRT rapid transit station on the Blue Line, located underground under Charoen Krung Road named after Wat Mangkon Kamalawat located nearby in Bangkok, Thailand. The station was designed to reflect the Chinese community in the surrounding area and was above-ground structures built in the Sino-Portuguese style to blend in with the local atmosphere. Dragon motifs are used throughout the station to reflect the name of the station (Wat Mangkon meaning "Dragon Temple"). The ceiling has also been designed such as if the passengers are walking inside a dragon's belly.[1]
