Wat Arun (temple of dawn) is the important temple in Bangkok by Chao Phraya River. It is known around the world as the beautiful temple reflecting Thai culture. There is splendorous architecture. A lot of tourists come to see every day. Wat Arun is more than 200 years old.
Wat Arun Ratchawararam Ratchawaramahawihan or Wat Arun (other names: Wat Jaeng, Temple of Dawn) is located on the Thonburi district west bank of the Chao Phraya River. The temple derives its name from the Hindu god Aruna, often personified as the radiations of the rising sun. Wat Arun is among the best known of Thailand's landmarks and the first light of the morning reflects off the surface of the temple with pearly iridescence. Although the temple had existed since at least the seventeenth century, its distinctive prang (spires) were built in the early nineteenth century during the reign of KingRama II.
The main feature of Wat Arun is its central prang (Khmer-style tower) which is encrusted with colourful porcelain. This is interpreted as a stupa-like pagoda encrusted with coloured faience. The prang are decorated by seashells and bits of porcelain which had previously been used as ballast by boats coming to Bangkok from China. The presiding Buddha image, cast in the reign of Rama II, is said to have been moulded by the king himself. The ashes of King Rama II are interred in the base of the image.
The construction of the tall prang and four smaller ones was started by King Rama II during 1809-1824 and completed by King Rama III (1824–1851). The towers are supported by rows of demons and monkeys. Very steep and narrow steps lead to a balcony high on the central tower.
