I found Wat Arun one of the most impressive Wats (temples) in Bangkok. It is located very near the Grand Palace, on the other sife of the Chao Praya river. It is dedicated to the Indian God Aruna, and the craftmanship of this building is stunning. When you stand below the 82-meter prang (Khmer-style tower), the building is overpowering to your senses.
