The Giant Swing, Sao Ching Cha, Bangkok.

The Giant Swing, Sao Ching Cha, Royal Monument, Wat Suthat, Bangkok.

The Giant Swing, Sao Ching Cha, Royal Monument, Wat Suthat, BangkokThe Giant Swing is situated on a traffic island outside Wat Suthat, close to the Bangkok City Hall. Well over 20m high this red painted teakwood swing is a replica of the original 1784 swing built on a location outside a Brahmin Temple in the city close by.

The present swing (2007) was erected in late 2006, and like the original has a finely carved lintel and deserves the designation as a site of national historic value (bestowed in 1949).

The Sao Ching Cha is so big it can be seen clearly with the naked eye from the viewing platform on The Golden Mount (Wat Saket Ratchaworamahawihan), The (Temple on the) Golden Mount, over half a mile away, in amongst the modern city buildings of the area.

This was part of a self planned walking tour that included viewing : The Golden Mount, Wat Saket, King Prajadhipok Museum, Mahakan Fort, Loha Prasart, The Democracy Monument, City Hall, The Giant Swing, The Ministry of Defence, City Pillar Shrine.
