The Temple of the Rising Sun, or Wat Arun, is perhaps the real symbol of Bangkok! This miracle of Eastern architecture is definitely worth seeing for yourself. Before the city was stagnated by skyscrapers, the temple was considered the tallest building in the city. The main highlight of this place is the multicolored ceramic tiles that decorate the pagodas. Thanks to these elements, Wat Arun received its unofficial name, the "Porcelain Temple".
