Temple of Dawn, or the Wat Arun is a Buddhist temple that sits on the western banks of the Chao Phraya River. This temple has derived its name from the Hindu God, Aruna who personified as the radiations of the rising sun. Wat Arun temple architecture is one of the best in Thailand, not just because it is located on the banks of a river, but because it is colourfully decorated with spires and murals. The best time to visit this temple is either early morning, before the crowds come in; or last in the evening towards the sunset. The temple’s spire stands tall over 70 metres high and is one of the most famous landmarks in Bangkok. This spire is decorated with coloured glass and Chinese porcelain that looks even more beautiful with sun’s rays falling over it.
