Photographer's Note

The famous Wat Arun, aka the Temple of the Dawn, is one of the best known landmarks of Bangkok.

It consists of a massive elongated Khmer-Style tower, and is surrounded by four smaller prangs.

The Wat really looks better from a distance than close up and despite it's name - coming from Aruna, the Indian God of the Dawn - the best views and photos of Wat Arun are in the evening with the sun setting behind it.
