Sensō-ji (金龍山浅草寺, Kinryū-zan Sensō-ji) is an ancient Buddhist temple located in Asakusa, Tokyo, Japan. It is Tokyo's oldest temple, and one of its most significant. Formerly associated with the Tendai sect of Buddhism, it became independent after World War II. Adjacent to the temple is a five-story pagoda, the Asakusa Shinto shrine, as well as many shops with traditional goods in the Nakamise-dōri. When we went there there’s a lot of people. If you have kids and still riding a stroller, they have a lift so you can enter the temple. I will recommend this place.

Missing Thailand 🇹🇭— the food, the shopping and the temples Wat Pho (the Temple of the Reclining Buddha), or Wat Phra Chetuphon, is right behind the Temple of the Emerald Buddha – it’s a must-see for any first-time visitor to Bangkok. You should also try their streetfoods— pad thai and mango sticky rice. Don’t forget to ride a tuktuk

The temple derives its name from the Hindu god Aruna,often personified as the radiations of the rising sun. Wat Arun is among the best known of Thailand's landmarks. The first light of the morning reflects off the surface of the temple with pearly iridescence

"Little Patricia then checks upon, a temple religiously known. Her stares are drawn, Where to be, WAT could it be? She said -- There's an inner peace in WAT ARUN, DAWN't stop me, I'll trace Buddhism in the Temple of Dawn." In one of my favorite movies, “Eat, Pray, Love”, Elizabeth Gilbert journeyed into a quest of soul-searching. In order to find tranquility and harmony within herself, she found her way praying in India. Just like her, I want to find my own balance. I want to seek my own escape from the knots and tangles of not knowing myself enough. Perchance, a good emancipation is to be spiritually healed. Through a sojourn in Bangkok’s WAT ARUN, peace wouldn’t be that far miles away anymore from your heart. The temple is known to be the “Temple of Dawn”, and for sure, the temple will give you enlightenment before dawn strikes. It is one of the major temples in Bangkok that houses Buddhism, hence, one can actually meditate here (If there wouldn’t be much people). In this temple, tourists can enjoy climbing up its steep stairs and reach the main prang of the temple. After this strenuous activity under the hot sun, you can see the scenic view of Bangkok and picturesque of Chao Phraya River on the side. So, just like what others say, everything is more worth it with a little sacrifice. Neverthless, you wouldn’t regret having this TEMPLE RUN!
