Without question, Wat Arun is one of my favorite sites in Bangkok. Wat Arun, the Temple of the Dawn, is made up of five towers, or prangs, each marvelously decorated with bits of shell and broken porcelain. True to its name, this is one of the best locations to watch the sun rise in Bangkok. While not for the acrophobic, visitors are allowed to climb to the top of the central tower which affords amazing views of the river and city beyond.

Beautiful shot. Definitely one of my favorite Bangkok temples.
Thanks, it was a special day for us and Wat Arun is one of my favorite places – anywhere.
Great shot, it reminds me of my time there long ago!
This was one of my favorites stops while in Bangkok. I love the intricate design on the temple, which your cool photo captures quite well.
Thanks! It is my favorite spot in Bangkok, lots of great memories. We’re going back next year and Wat Arun will be one of the first stops.
Nice shot Matt, I find some of these buildings are so photogenic it’s hard to actually select a shot.
