One of Bangkok’s most famous landmarks. This Khmer-style Buddhist temple is located on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River. Its name, which means “the temple of dawn”, describes the reflection of the morning’s first light from the river’s on to the temple.

The temple’s main feature is the central tower which is covered in broken porcelain tiles and topped with a seven pronged trident – referred to by many as the “Trident of Shiva”.

Wat Arun can be reached either by Arun Amarin Road or by boat from Tha Tien Pier near Wat Pho. The same dress code applies as at other temples.
