Loha Prasat, in Wat Ratchanatdaram in Bangkok, a Buddhist temple was built in 1846 by King Rama III for his grand daughter. It is also called Iron Temple. Loha means Iron in Hindi and Sanskrit and probably Pali too. This temple is part of the buigger Wat Ratchamatdaram.

I have not seen a similar architecture for a Wat anywhere else. The uniqueness is the multi-tiered with 37 spires. This is located close to Khaosan at the intersection between Ratchadamnoen Klang and Maha Chai Road. Just a stones throw away from Wat Saket. Not to be missed if you have time.
