WAT ARUN


One of Bangkok’s most recognisable landmarks, Wat Arun …

ARCHITECTURE

Wat Arun is a Khmer-style temple with four prangs (also known as prasat) and one larger one in the middle. This layout is a representation of the five sacred mountains which were home to the gods according to Khmer, Hindu and Buddhist cosmology. The central prang represents Mount Meru, the centre of the universe. When the height of the central prang was extended, Rama III ordered that colourful ceramics and porcelain should be used to form elaborate motifs and designs. This unusual design feature makes the prangs shimmer and shine in the sunlight and give the temple a unique appeal that has to be seen close up to be fully appreciated. A staircase, which is very steep with narrow steps, allows visitors to climb part way up the central prang to a platform which gives fine views.
