Wat Arun in Bangkok
Wat Arun, also known as the Temple of the Dawn, is one of the most striking temples in Bangkok. What sets Wat Arun apart from other temples in Bangkok is its riverside location, allowing for uninterrupted views of the temple from along the river bank, and its unusual design which features a large central tower with four smaller towers around it. The tower are shaped like prang, which is a Khmer style of chedi or stupa. The central prang is around 70 metres tall and was completed during the reign of King Rama III (1824 to 1851).
All five prang are decorated in symmetrical recurring patterns using sea shells and pieces of porcelain which are reputed to have been dumped on the side of the river by Chinese merchant vessels which carried broken china plates and cups on the journey to Bangkok to stabilise their ships before returning laden with cargo.
Wat Arun is Buddhist temple but the name and the design of the temple is closely related to Hindu beliefs. The name Wat Arun is a reference to the Hindu God Aruna, the Sun God. The central prang is a representation of Mount Meru, which in Hindu mythology is the mountain at the centre of the universe where the Gods reside.
There are also statues of other Hindu Gods in lots of locations around the temple and the central prang is topped by seven tiered trident believed to represent the trident of Shiva.
