Wat Arun – 1st batch Kring
The spiritual valurs of Phra Kring with possessing charms and loving-kindness, escaping from dangers and enhancing safety, being triumphant over one’s enemies and making sacred holy water for treating illness…
Wat Arun, one of the first temples built in the city – and yes, that tower really is leaning over slightly!
Wat Arun is a good introduction to Thai temple architecture, which is rich in Hindu and Buddhist themes such as this statue of Erawan, the Thai three-headed elephant which corresponds to the Hindu elephant Airavata, the steed of Indra the Lord of War. The decoration on the side of the temple is made from broken crockery brought as ballast in trading ships from China.
