The temple is?one of the smallest in Bangkok and is more of a shrine. The temple has no resident monks though monks come to the temple to do ceremonies & pray. Wat Lokanukroh is easy to miss as the area around the temple is full of bustling commercial activity. On market days you will need to look behind the stalls to find it. The vendors here sell bags, paper bags, plastic bags, accessories, clothes, and small gift items. Most buyers here are vendors themselves buying stock for their shops and stalls.?
