Wat Bhoman Khunaram in Yanawa district

Wat Bhoman Khunaram in Yanawa district

วัดโพธิ์แมนคุณาราม เขตยานาวา, various romanizations: Wat Bhoman Khunaram, Wat Pho Maen Khunaram, Wat Poe Man Khunaram, but in Thai it's written and pronounced like the famous Wat Pho. https://www.facebook.com/bhomantemple

Location:
13°42'03.1"N 100°32'24.2"E 13.700869, 100.540056
170 m west of the crossing of Naradhiwas Rajanagarindra Road ถนนนราธิวาสราชนครินทร์ and Rama III Road. 410 m north-east of Central Plaza Rama III. 

Directions:
Accessible from Naradhiwas Rajanagarindra Soi 24 = Sathu Pradit สาธุประดิษฐ์ Soi 19 (but much closer to NR than to SP).
From BTS Chong Nonsi สถานีช่องนนทรี, take BRT to Thanon Chan ถนนจันทน์ and walk 700 m.

Large, beautifully decorated and centrally located, but hasn't received much attention. Further reading:
