Discover Wat Arun

Go by the blue prints and you’d believe the Wat Arun is made from stone and porcelain. But a whole lot of symbolism holds this place together, too. This rocket-shaped building represents the dawn, its main tower symbolizes the sacred Hindu mountain, Mount Meru, its satellite towers are dedicated to the wind god Phra Pahi, and the statues at the entranceway represent demons from the Hindu epic Ramakian.
