I first mistook the Supreme Court building for another temple – it has a huge complex with an intricately decorated rooftop, resplendent with gold that catches the afternoon sun. The view from Wat Botum Park (Wat Bottom on Google Maps) was amazing. It is a very impressive building and a nice piece of architecture to admire; very close to the Royal Palace and several monuments in the area. Well worth a look.
