Wat Arun
Bangkok

Wat Arun (or the Temple of Dawn) is probably one of the most recognisable temples in Bangkok, not least because the image of the temple has been published so often. The temple comprises a central tower (of Khmer architectural design) surrounded by four smaller towers. The central tower is around 80 metres high and as night falls Wat Arun cuts a distinctive silhouette against the Bangkok skyline. Wat Arunís striking design is probably its chief feature. Given this, compared to other temples, Wat Arun may not warrant a special visit if you are in Bangkok for a short time.

The Wat is though historically important. It originally housed the Emerald Buddha after its return to Thailand and it features murals and a Buddha image designed by King Rama II. You can walk up steps which take you part way up the main tower and provide an excellent view of the city. The temple is situated on the Thonburi side of the Chapaya River and probably represents the main tourist attraction in that area.
