Admire the grand and evocative design of Temple Of Dawn (Wat Arun), a towering Buddhist temple located in the heart of Bangkok. Established in the 1600s--but gaining its distinctive porcelain-clad prangs (spires) during the reign of King Rama II in the early 19th century--the temple represents an apex of religious architecture and is one of the best maintained of all buildings commissioned by the Thai monarchy. Open to the public as a place of worship and tourism, the site contains prized artifacts relating to the religious and royal history of Thailand.

  • Beautiful temple and surrounding area, one of the best. Great photos are guaranteed. The last time we visited, I willingly donated around 1,000 baht and bought from vendors without being pressured, It’s nice to have this choice. Security have since expanded their territory. To enter the whole area including the neighbouring temple and greenery it costs 100 Baht from anyone not Thai. Thai people like my wife and baby can get in for free.
  • As a photographer, I get really excited when I enter a place that is full of beautiful structures and different colors. Especially when I realize that it is one of the most important places in the city and has a part of the history of that city. Do not forget this wonderful place when traveling to the beautiful city of Bangkok. fantastic.
