About khaosan road entrance
Khao San Road is known as the Bangkok backpacker central, yet has no historical sights to speak of. Even so, its location in the Old City makes it an ideal base from which to explore Bangkok’s classic attractions. That's not to say there's nothing to look at or admire here, though.

Wat Bowonniwet, or Wat Bowon for short is a first class Royal temple in Bangkok’s Phra Nakhon district. The temple, which is also known as Wat Bovornives was built during the reign of King Nangklao (Rama III) in the first half of the 19th century, when it was called Wat Mai. Originally there were two temples separated by a canal, the Wat Rangsi Sutthawat and the Wat Mai. In 1923 the two temples were merged into the Wat Bowonniwet.
