Features
Family-friendly

Known as the Temple of Dawn, this large temple complex’s most identifying feature is a spire with scary-steep steps. Brave the incline and you’ll be rewarded with a picture- perfect view of the ChaoPhraya River. Climb down and catch the Buddhist murals and rows of golden sculptures lining the walls of the nearby buildings.
