Temples in Bangkok


Last week I was in Bangkok for a few days and made a little tour. Photo above is a detail of the world famous "Wat Arun" (Temple of dawn) along the Chao Phraya River. In 2013 they started to renovate this temple and it seems to be almost finished. Job well done, it looks beautiful! For more information see Wikipedia Wat Arun

The photo under is a part of the "Wat Traimit" in China Town that houses the famous Golden Buddha. It is said to be 3 meters high and have a weight of 5.5 solid gold. There is an interesting story about this Buddha image, for more information see Wikipedia Golden Buddha (statue)
