Today finally I had a chance to go to Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn.
We took a boat to the temple. The water level was really high because it’s rainy season here. Over there you can see Wat Arun.
The fare to take the boat is….3 baht. Unbelievably cheap!
Wat Arun was so high. I cannot have everything in one shot from the very bottom.
The colors of the tiles are faded for decades but still very colorful and cute. It would have been very beautiful at the beginning. The tiles are actually from bowls. You can see some of them really look like they are from bowls.
I would recommend anyone visiting Thailand or Bangkok to visit Wat Arun. This is my favorite touristy spot so far. You can enjoy temple and how it merges with the city together. This is what I can see from the top of Wat Arun. Across the river is the Palace and Wat Pho. The time of the day made it better with a great sunset over the city.
It was as if he walked into a museum and wandered around the priceless pieces and found one that he immensely felt protective towards. So fond of it, he didn’t dare to touch at all. Minhyuk’s long-time wish is to wake up next to you, and with God’s grace, he has finally had the chance to.
You’re not usually the kind that would sleep in, but this morning was an exception, because it was a long ride on the plane yesterday, and your cheeks are hurting from smiling too much. Minhyuk couldn’t stop taking your pictures and couple selfies, not that you mind it at all, and it wasn’t all his fault. He had an irresistible and addictive smile line that you would spontaneously would 100 percent smile back at him, just because he is. Minhyuk lay his head on his bicep, laying on his side to face you. He is wide awake and extremely smiley.
When visiting Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn) in #Bangkok, remember to look up. The ceiling of the ordination hall, like everything else here, is a spectacular riot of porcelain and gold leaf. Photo by @ashleahalpern #takemethere (at Wat Arun Rajwararam (The Temple of Dawn))
Wat Arun (temple of dawn) is a Buddhist monument in Bangkok, Thailand. It got its name from the Hindu god Aruna, often personified as the radiations of the rising sun. It’s among Thailand’s best-known landmarks. The first light of the morning reflects off the surface of the temple by the river with pearly iridescence. Although the temple had existed since at least the 17th century, its distinctive spires were only added in the early 19th century during the reign of King Rama II.
