Wat Chakrawat is a two-century-old temple tucked away in crowded grounds next to a big parking lot near Chinatown. From the outside, it looks like another temple in Bangkok. Wat Chakrawat has an unusual nickname, however. It’s called ‘The Crocodile Temple’ due to its unique permanent resident.
For the lucky visitors, they will visit on the days the monks clean the crocodile pit. That would make for some dynamic pictures indeed. Alas, as my luck would have it, I happened to be there on a really, really, really, excruciatingly quiet day. I mean, even the crocs looked bored.
