Wat Yannawa is an old Buddhist temple (wat) dating back to the Ayutthaya period, located in the Sathon district of Bangkok on Charoen Krung Road, Bangkok, Thailand. It has a unique junk shaped chedi and viharn built by King Rama III. On the banks of the Chao Phraya River you will find Wat Yannawa, or the Boat Temple. It was during the Ayutthaya Era that this temple was built, when the now bustling city of Bangkok was nothing more than farmland. This Thai-Chinese temple was built during the nineteenth century made to resemble a Chinese junk vessel under the orders of King Rama III.
