watarun

The ornate floral mosaics on the Wat Arun are made from broken, multihued Chinese porcelain, a common temple ornamentation in the early Ratanakosin period, when Chinese ships calling at the port of Bangkok discarded tonnes of old porcelain as ballast. The temple was renamed after the Indian god of dawn (Aruna) and in honour of the literal and symbolic founding of a new Ayuthaya. #WatArun #Bangkok #Azure #ArubanTraveler #EarthCapture #travelingourplanet #escapeordinary #teamtravelers #createexploretakeover #tourtheplanet #travelawesome #worldbestgram #collectmoments #amzthld #travelblog #travelgram #thailand #beautifuldestinations #traveler #travelphotography #thailand2016 #natgeotravel #schooloftravel #studentnomad #mosaic #architecture (at Wat Arun (Temple Of The Dawn, 黎明寺))
