The Monk's quarters in the temple grounds.

The Monk's quarters in the temple grounds.
Behind the ubosot is a large white-washed chedi built by King Rama IV (Mongkut) in the mid-nineteenth century. The outer wall of the stairway leading up to the base of the chedi has a bas relief Chinese dragon emblazoned on it.
All of the buildings sit in a large compound still filled with trees, unlike most temples in the city. Behind the northern wiharn is a sort of folly. A man-made mountain with a waterfall and 'cave' which you can walk through to reach the wiharn.
