Wat Arun: A Complete Guide

As the sun plunges gradually underneath the skyline over the sparkling waters of the Chao Phraya River, blushing shafts of light imbue the multi-toned towers of Wat Arun sanctuary with a fantastic brilliant shine in the Bangkok nightfall.

Wat Arun is a standout amongst the most conspicuous sanctuaries on the planet, and it makes a heavenly stamp on the Bangkok horizon. It’s a great must-see on a rundown of spots to visit in the City of Angels — and it’s especially grand when seen at nightfall or at the break of another day.

After the fall of Ayuthaya, King Taksin ceremoniously clinched control here on the site of a local shrine and established a royal palace and a temple to house the Emerald Buddha. The temple was renamed after the Indian god of dawn (Aruna) and in honour of the literal and symbolic founding of a new Ayuthaya.

Key Takeaways:

  • Wat Arun temple, located in Bangkok, is one of the most famous temples in the world and a must see when in Bangkok.
  • The Emerald Buddha was enshrined at Wat Arun until it was relocated to the Grand Palace in 1785.
  • Wat Arun is still actively used as a temple by monks and locals.

“Once inside the temple complex, the massive 79 metre high central Khmer-style tower soars toward the heavens, sheathed in decorative mosaic designs made from fragments of porcelain and glass which sparkle as they catch the light.”
