Wat Paknam, also called Wat Bang Nam, is located in Thon Buri just outside Bangkok and across the river. The temple is quite a place to visit if you have time. The temple is home to a huge monastary, providing Buddhist Teachings to many of the local Thais as well as home to many Buddist Monks. The temple is located along Klong Dan, which in part, attributes to the temple name. This temple is home to a huge Chedi which can be seen from many places in Thomburi. The Chedi is home to a large crystal chedi as well as home to a Buddhist Museum, which are on display for all to see.
Wat Paknam is on the klong tours in the Bangkok Area.
Wat Bang Nam is also home to an awesome turtle garden, full of turtles of many sizes and shapes.
