This temple is regarded as the most famous and photographed temple in Bangkok. Has a 79 meter high tower decorated with small pieces of colored glass and Chinese porcelain. Wat Arun is one of the most important tourist attractions in Bangkok and was built in honor of the Indian god of the sunset, Aruna. Central tower, very tall, is called Phra Prang and glitters in the sunlight because of its carvings. The temple has four towers representing an embodiment of the 33 heavens on earth.
