Excellent place. You have to remove your shoes. Heavily crowded especially Chinese tourist. Better to move in the morning. Walkable distance from Grand Palace. This place no to miss in Bangkok.

Good to see this place. I understand shoes/slippers should not be worn inside this Shrine/hall. But everyone needs to keep their shoes in a plastic bag (provided there for free-of-cost) and carry inside. Two things do not sound good - 1. Carrying shoes inside the sacred shrine/hall 2. Lots of plastic bags are in use and does not seem wise at this time of era where all govt is trying to reduce plastic usages.

Why couldn't these two be avoided by asking people leaving their shoes simply outside (just like it is done in Grand Palace, before entering into "temple of Emerald Buddha" shrine/hall)?
