Silom Attractions

What to See in Silom

While it doesn't boast much in the form of traditional sightseeing attractions, there still is plenty to see in the Silom area. For a glimpse of another culture, visit the multi-coloured Sri Mariamman Hindu temple (locally known as 'Wat Khaek Silom') located just up and across the street from Silom Village.

An exceptional bird eye's view of the city can also be experienced at Lebua at State Tower, Thailand's second-tallest building. Take a look at our full list of attractions in and around Silom.

Bangkok Seashell Museum

At first, Bangkok Shell Museum appears to be a place addressing only conchologists (of course you know what a conchologist is) and other shell collectors, and in a way it's not untrue, a shell museum seems a geeky place to visit on a holiday, especially in a big city.

Christ Church

After an influx of protestant missionaries in the early to mid 19th Century, King Rama IV granted land for a church to be built to serve them in Charoenkrung Road. However, it wasn't long until the English Church (as it was then known due its mainly English congregation) was overstretched. In 1904 King Rama V granted permission for a bigger and more centrally located church to be built.

The result was this lovely white Anglican Church on Convent Road, built in simple gothic-meets-colonial style. Today it serves a congregation of around 500, lending spiritual shelter from Sathorn Road's teeming traffic. The interior is painted white and contains stained glass windows, one of which depicts Christ's crucifixion. It also contains Thailand's only pipe organ. Services and sermons are given in both Thai and English.

  • Opening Hours: 08:30 - 16:30 (closed Saturday and Sunday)
  • Location: 11 Convent Road, Sathorn

Cloud 47

Located at the top of the United Center office tower, Cloud 47 is quite different from any other rooftop you might have heard of or visited before.

Sri Mariamman Hindu Temple

This Hindu temple dedicated to the Goddess Mariamman was built by Tamil immigrants in the 1860s. Renowned for her power to protect against disease and death, it remains a popular place of worship for Silom's long-established Indian community. Its riotous blend of rich colours and ornate decoration makes for an unmistakable and rather unexpected sight in the heart of Silom.

The tall façade is adorned with intricate, entwining Hindu deities. Inside are shrines dedicated not only to Shiva's consort, but also sons Subramaniam and the elephant-headed Ganesha, as well as Vishnu and Krishna. It's well worth seeing, but taking pictures inside the complex is forbidden.

  • Opening Hours: 06:00 - 20:00
  • Location: Corner Pan and Silom Roads, Silom
