Temple of the Dawn - Wat Arun, Bangkok: 168 reviews and 331 photos

 
 

This temple is just amazing, it was built in the mid 1850s. You cannot see it on the picture but the whole temple is decorated by broken china. And they only had enough for half of the temple. So they asked people in Bangkok to donate more china to finish it. It is wonderful to walk around it.
