Temple of Dawn- Wat Arun Bangkok

Wat Arun is a popular temple in Bangkok, on the other side of Chao Praya river. We spent a short while here, about 30 minutes or so (because we came in via a boat ride and we were asked to return in about 20 mins)I believe we could explore only a part of it, but being our last day in city we'd seen enough of temples, hence didn't mind returning after a short exploration

I don't have too much text to narrate- wikipedia is good at those details if you're interested. Sharing some photos below


Temple entry fee was 20 baht per person and we were also charged a boat parking fee of 20 baht.

Climbing up 100s of step is a nice exercise and we went up as high as steps allowed. Besides exercise, it allowed good view of the city.
