The longest running temple fair in Bangkok takes place at the Golden Mount at Wat Saket. The annual worship fair has been taking place around the full moon in November ever since the time of Rama V. The temple fair starts when the red cloth is paraded around the local community and is then taken to the top of the hill where it is wrapped around the chedi. The Golden Mount is 63.6 meters high. Construction was started during the reign of King rama III but wasn’t completed until the reign of King Rama V.
