Wat Arun


also known as "The Temple of Dawn" is a riverside Temple on the West side of the Chao Phraya River almost opposite Wat Po on the East side. 

It is constructed of brick on the place where General Taksin [ later King Taksin ] and his surviving army landed after the sacking of Ayutthaya. The Central Prang is 79 meters high [ 259 feet ] and is cornered by four smaller prangs. 

All of these are encrusted with porcelain and ceramic pieces to form motives, usually of flowers, mythical animals and figures. Construction was commenced under Rama II whose bronze statue stands just to the north of the Temple on the River embankment.

The design style is Ayutthaya, which also follows traditional Khmer and ultimately Hindu concepts. The Central Prang symbolizes ancient Mount Meru and the steepness and consequential difficulty in climbing its steps is intended to illustrate the difficulty in life of attaining closeness to the realm of the Gods.







Rated in "Most Popular ToursThe most attractive structure is the 79 metre high pagoda. It is also called the ‘Temple of Dawn’. Most beautiful view is from the east side of the river at sunset. Touristy but try a "Longtail Boat ride" from Central Pier which links with BTS (skytrain) station Saphan taksin and on arrival try the ever popular photo shot in Thai costume.
