Have you ever visited this temple? This temple is located in Thailand and was directly across from Wat Pho, both are limited by the Chao Praya River, so we need to ride the ferry to visit it. We walk from Wat Pho to Tha Tien Pier and from there took a small boat to Wat Arun. The main Prang at the temple is very high and very steep stairs to climb and narrow. But that does not impede people struggling to climb because of the beautiful scenery that we can see when it is up on it. In the courtyard of the temple is also a lot to offer photography services using typical Thai clothes. Idly I photographed near a plywood-clad statue whose face hollowed typical of Thailand. After several pictures taken suddenly there who asked for money services such triplex rental statue.

The main attraction of Wat Arun: The Temple of Dawn (and what will be the most photographed while visiting Bangkok) is Phra Prang or central tower surrounded by four smaller prangs. The Phar toewr Prang is 81 meters and contains three levels of view or a terrace. Only the first level is open to the public, but if you climb the steep stairs to the "balcony," you'll get a great view of the Chao Praya River and the city of Bangkok. Built in the style of Khmer Cambodia, similar to the temples of Angkor Wat, the tower is built of brick and covered with cement. exterior is then decorated with thousands of pieces of Chinese porcelain tiles in several colors.

Restoration and preservation in the temple of Wat Arun is in progress, and you can see the restoration work hard using the methods of traditional bamboo scaffolding.
