The Wat Ratchanadda is located across the street from the Golden Mountain in Bangkok. Construction was started in the reign of Rama III in the 19th century but was only recently completed due to the complexity of its design. There are five towers of varying sizes, topped by huge iron spikes. The many columns create a labyrinth. The central tower has steps that lead to shrine at the top. The amulet market behind the temple is famous.
