The full name of Wat Saket is Wat Saket Ratcha Wora Maha Wihan. Wat Saket is also known as the temple of the golden mount, temple of the golden mountain, golden mount, golden mountain, and is locally known as Phu Khao Thong.
Wat Saket is one of the most famous temples in Thailand.

Wat Saket is an ancient buddhist temple on a 80 meter tall hill. The top of the temple is decorated with a golden pagoda, also called ''chedi''. This is why Wat Saket is also known as temple of the golden mount and temple of the golden mountain.

The hill and temple are decorated with many trees, plants, flowers, statues, sculptures, and bells, which makes this place enjoyable for walking around and sightseeing. To get to the top of the temple you must climb around 300 steps that are placed in a circle around the temple. During the climb you can enjoy beautiful views of Bangkok, and at the top of the temple you can enjoy a 360 degree view of Bangkok.

Originally, in the 18th century, Wat Saket was a crematorium and dumping ground for 60,000 plague victims. It was used as a place to cremate the dead. Now the temple is used for worshipping.

Wat Saket is located on Chakkraphatdi Phong Road in the Pom Prap Sattru Phai district of Bangkok.
