Located on the west bank of Chao Phraya River, Wat Arun can be reached either by Arun Amarin Road or by crossing the river by boat from Tha Tien Pier, near Wat Pho. The most attractive structure of this temple is the 79 metres high pagoda of Phra Prang. Wat Arun was renovated during the brief Thonburi period to be the Royal Chapel of King Taksin. Despite the meaning of its name that is The Temple of Dawn, the most beautiful view of it is from the Bangkok side of the river at sunset.
Wat Arun is open daily from 08.30 ? 17.30 hours. An admission fee of 20 Baht is required.
Address: Tha Tien Pier, Chao Phraya River
Directions: From this pier take a cross river ferry to Wat Arun.
