Located at the base of the Golden Mount, you should visit both on the same stop of your tour. Wat Saket is the second most beautiful, intricate, and well-kept temples I saw (Wat Phra Keo was #1). The gold roof tops absolutely sparkled in the afternoon sunlight. Upon entering the main temple, I was greeted by a handful of young Thai men and women who were repainting the gigantic murals on the walls -- their attention to the smallest details was very impressive.

Since many visitors to the city go to the Golden Mount, I was amazed that there were no other tourists at this beautiful temple!
