Temple of Dawn ( Wat Arun )


On the Thonburi bank of the Chao Phraya we have the glittering Temple of Dawn or Wat Arun.

The chedi in this old temple from the Ayutthaya era are studded with thousands of pieces of porcelain.

King Taksin passed the old temple at dawn and vowed to restore it.

The Emerald Buddha was kept here until the reign of King Rama I when the Temple of the Emerald Buddha was built.
