Recommendation by Lemi

Wat Arun, also known as the Temple of Dawn, is one of the largest and most beautiful temples in Bangkok. It is particularly significant to Buddhist worshippers as it pays homage to Mount Meru—the central world-mountain mentioned in Buddhist cosmology. Wat Arun’s architecture is impeccably delicate, its main feature being the porcelain-coated prang (Khmer tower). Whip out your camera and take photos or stay to watch the sun slowly rise behind the temple where the morning light sparkles off its golden spires.
