The temple is really beautiful with golden light during the night time and the scenery is stunning. I’d love to go back there again. #Bangkok

Additional Information


Wat Arun is a prominent Buddhist temple located along the banks of the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok Yai District. It is one of the few temples that remain from Thailand’s Chakri dynasty. The temple’s most distinctive feature is the central Khmer-style tower. Glazed porcelain tiles and seashells cover the exterior, giving the entire complex a brilliant shine, particularly in the early morning light. For many years Wat Arun housed the famous Emerald Buddha, before it was moved to Wat Phra Kaew in 1785. As one of Bangkok’s beloved temples, this is certainly an attraction visitors won’t want to miss.
