Golden Mount

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

The city’s tallest man-made hill, the Golden Mount towers over the city wall. Modeled on a similar structure in the former capital of Ayutthaya (1351-1767), it contains a relic of the Buddha, placed there on his 2,000th birthday in 1957. Its summit offers a panoramic view of Bangkok. (Daily, 8 a.m.-9 p.m.)
