Wat Arun, Temple of the Dawn

The stunning Wat Arun on the banks of the Chao Phraya River is also known as Wat Chaeng or the temple of the dawn. The history of Wat Arun goes back to 1768 when King Taksin arrived at this place at dawn after fighting his way out of battle against the Burmese army in Ayutthaya. Today the temple is just as popular at sunset as it is sunrise as the beautifully illuminated spires glow and reflect on the river.
