Make your way to Ōsu Kannon Temple to encounter the wooden statue of Kannon, the goddess of mercy! The popular Buddhist temple was originally located in Gifu Prefecture before it was moved to its current site in central Nagoya. Upon entering the main hall, you’ll find a giant red lantern where worshipers tie small notes with their wishes written on them. Once you’ve left your own wish, head to the edifice’s special library to peruse over 15,000 classic Japanese and Chinese texts!

The temple derives its name from the Hindu god Aruna,often personified as the radiations of the rising sun. Wat Arun is among the best known of Thailand's landmarks. The first light of the morning reflects off the surface of the temple with pearly iridescence

"Little Patricia then checks upon, a temple religiously known. Her stares are drawn, Where to be, WAT could it be? She said -- There's an inner peace in WAT ARUN, DAWN't stop me, I'll trace Buddhism in the Temple of Dawn." In one of my favorite movies, “Eat, Pray, Love”, Elizabeth Gilbert journeyed into a quest of soul-searching. In order to find tranquility and harmony within herself, she found her way praying in India. Just like her, I want to find my own balance. I want to seek my own escape from the knots and tangles of not knowing myself enough. Perchance, a good emancipation is to be spiritually healed. Through a sojourn in Bangkok’s WAT ARUN, peace wouldn’t be that far miles away anymore from your heart. The temple is known to be the “Temple of Dawn”, and for sure, the temple will give you enlightenment before dawn strikes. It is one of the major temples in Bangkok that houses Buddhism, hence, one can actually meditate here (If there wouldn’t be much people). In this temple, tourists can enjoy climbing up its steep stairs and reach the main prang of the temple. After this strenuous activity under the hot sun, you can see the scenic view of Bangkok and picturesque of Chao Phraya River on the side. So, just like what others say, everything is more worth it with a little sacrifice. Neverthless, you wouldn’t regret having this TEMPLE RUN!

One of the major attractions in Bangkok that I want to visit. It has an amazing architecture with attention to detail. A must see place in Thailand. The art and architecture is stunning and amazing. I want to see it for myself.
