Wat Ratchanaddaram Worawihan, close to the Golden Mount, the Metal Castle, Loha Prasart, is the other side of the Klong (Khlong) Ong Ang in the Rattanakosin District of BangkokReminiscent of the exterior of a 'European' style fairytale castle, Wat Ratchanaddaram Worawihan is free to enter when open and is the only metal roofed Buddhist temple remaining in the world. Colloquially known as Loha Prasart, Metal Castle. Loha means metal in Thai. The roof is in the Thai style with the central roof point at 36m above ground level and a total of 37 spires in all, 37 being the number of chapters of Dharma in Buddhism.
