Located in front of Wat Suthat this swing is not for playing but actually this one is a religious structure in Bangkok used for the Swing ceremony. The pillars of the swing represent the mountains and the circular base represents the earth and the ocean. During the ceremony Brahmins swing to grab a bag of coins placed on one of the pillars.
