NileGuide Expert tip:

Straight out the front door and nearly two blocks down on the right stop in for some great noodles in a slightly sour almost fuchsia-colored soup at Lee Heng. The sign's not in English, so look for number 128 Thanon Mahannop.

Description:

Two tiger statues guard the door to this Bangkok shrine often referred to as the Tiger Temple. At the center of the Tiger God Shrine is a statue highly regarded by locals and believed to house the spirit and bones of a tiger. Many worshipers will crowd this Taoist origin shrine to leave offerings, pray and burn incense for good luck. Shafts of sunlight often penetrate the smoky interiors giving the place a bit more mystical atmosphere. The shrine is open daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and admission is free. Buses 2,15,47,59,511,512 pass nearby.
