Ton son Mosque Bangkok

4523

Ton son mosque located in Bangkok Yai district of Bangkok is the first mosque in Bangkok founded in 1688 during the reign of King Narai, originally this mosque was named as Kudai Yai, and it was built with teak wood and the architecture was similar to Buddhist monastery
Later this mosque was renovated in 1952 and rebuild with brick and stones, recently the mosque was again renovated and got its polished look as seen in the pictures since this mosque holds the privilege of being the first mosque in Bangkok, from its architecture point of view it has lost its significance, the new look of mosque aimed more toward traditional Islamic look and feel while the original building reflected more of Thai art and culture . there is old building next to the mosque were bits and pieces of the first building are kept , you can see it with a permission if your allergic to dust I won’t recommend it
Located few hundred meters away from the famous “ Wat Arun” the easiest way to reach this mosque is go to Wat Arun first and then get on Thanon Arun marin road which is very near to Wat Arun and ask a motorcycle guy for Masjid Ton son
If you are some where on Silom or Sukhumvit /Pratrunam area, and looking for a bit of adventure then get a BTS train to Saphan Taksin station, get down off the station and walk towards Taksin boat pier, get the boat to Wat Arun which is 7th pier from Taksin pier , it takes 20 minutes to reach this pier, mean while you can enjoy the river side sceneries, once you reach Wat Arun pier, next thing you need to do is cross the river as Wat Arun is on the opposite side of the pier, spend 3 baht to cross the river via a small ferry boat which is available on the same pier , once you reach Wat Arun just walk straight few minutes look for a motorcycle guy and ask him to drop at Masjid Ton son pay him 30 baht ,it hardly takes few to reach mosque
