Wat Arun or the Temple of Dawn, locally known as Wat Chaeng, is situated on the west (Thonburi) bank of the Chao Phraya River.
Wat Arun is a Khmer-style temple with four prangs (also known as prasat) and one larger one in the middle. This layout is a representation of the five sacred mountains which were home to the Gods. This unusual design feature the colorful ceramics and porcelain makes the prangs shimmer and shine in the sunlight and give the temple a unique appeal that has to be seen close up to be fully appreciated.
