Wat Saket Ratcha Wora Maha Wihan, (usually shortened to Wat Saket), is a Buddhist temple in Pom Prap Sattru Phai district, in Bangkok, Thailand.  The temple dates back to the Ayutthaya era, when it was known as Wat Sakae. When Bangkok became the capital, King Rama I renovated the temple and gave it its present name.  It also has a common name of the Golden Mount Temple.
