"Temple of the Dawn" Temple of the Dawn - Wat Arun Tip by floss1

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.

Address: 158 Wang Doem Road, Wat Arun
