That short gray wall right next to it should help rule out some of these choices

I am pretty sure elephant washing was in TAR 2, leg 6.
Sorry, Paldog. AR2, ep. 6 was the DETOUR "Beast" involving a ride on an elephant, which no team elected. There was no washing stated in the explanation of what "Beast" entailed.

The Roadblock on that leg, they did wash an elephant though. :)

The really pointy part on top of the doors and the snakes pointing out all along the sides match. Where is it though?

At first I thought they were building dioramas, but it appears to be spirit houses.

There are no gray railings and the stairs on this one go to the sides while the one we search have the stair straight out.

I'm not one to give up easily, but I give up! I've looked at every 'Wat' listed in Wikitravel in the whole of East, West and North Thailand and haven't found it! Give us another promo please CBS!!

I think it's not a temple by itself but part of a complex, because we can see a pagoda at the back and another building on the side. It's probably a small secondary building. I tried the wat phra kaew because a large park surrounds it but I couldn't find a match.

By the way, if something comes up in CBSpressexpress please let us know because the site has become suddenly unavailable in other geographical areas.

I think a small building in wat phra kaew is very possible too kiki but I can't find it there either. It has the redroofed building and the other temples but...

I am wondering if this is somewhere TAR has been before? The would not have had much time to arrange for new film permits...so perhaps they are reusing an old one as a starting place to go on?? ???

If it helps searching, I think it's the ubosot or ordination hall. The different temple elements are pictured here.

My only concerns with it being part of a complex in the middle of the city is that we can see on the far right of the screen a rather large hill, something I don't think Bangkok has too many of..

^ No, the steps are wrong. Also there is no free space on the left side.
The picture below is the same temple from a different angle.
