Loha Prasat, also famous as ‘Metal Castle,’ dwells inside the Wat Ratchanatdaram Woravihara along with many similar temples and relics. More often than not, the temple is overshadowed by the fame of the closely located relics such as Khaosan and Wat Saket. The imposing Loha Prasat is also considered as world’s only brazen palace (the building’s roof is made of bronze tiles).
Loha Prasat encompasses a Golden relic of Lord Buddha which has been placed the highest. The unique wood carvings and mural art on the walls and doors recite its glorifying history and its importance. Loha Prasat is surrounded by huge white temples dedicated to Buddhism, and there is a market dealing in amulets and Buddha statues is located right behind the temple.
