Wat Arun Rachawararam in Bangkok

Wat Arun in Bangkok

Wat Arun Rachawararam is also known as “The Temple of Dawn” or just Wat Arun. This beautiful temple on the bank of the Choa Praya is built in Thailand’s Ayutthaya period as “Wat Makok”. King Taksin renamed this Buddhist temple in Bangkok to “Wat Jeng” when Thonburi become the capital of Thailand. King Rama II let renovate Wat Arun and give it the name “Wat Ratchataram”. Under King Rama IV it becomes the present name “Wat Arun Rachawaram”. Many believers come here to this holy place in Bangkok to worship Buddha. The foreigners come to see the adorned holy stupa and the stone statures. Especially at sunset is the Wat Arun a magnificent model for beautiful holiday pictures. After a visit at this temple on the west bank I will recommend a visit at Wat Pho which is just on the other side of the Chao Praya River in Bangkok and good to reach by ferry.
