  Wat Bang Peng Tai

 

Thailand

Wat Bang Peng Tai is a Buddhist temple in Minburi, located on Khlong Saen Saeb (fig.), a major canal that runs through Bangkok.

 

On weekends and holidays the area around the temple turns into a floating market, which is known as Talaat Nahm Khwan-Riam (fig.).

On such days, when many people are expected to visit the area, the temple may organize special events to allow visitors to make merit.

 

As is the case with most temples in Thailand, it serves as a social meeting place and blends in perfectly with the adjoining market.
