550 life of Buddha in the past painting.
Jan 2017 • Family
The temple is not a tourist temple, but you can walk there after visit the Wat Arun, it’s easy to get there, inside the main hall placed the very high standing Buddha in position of fearless of Abhaya mudra in Sanskrit, and the prior masterpiece of this place are the mural paintings on the wall that were painted in the reign of King Rama III showing the Life scenes of reincarnation of the Buddha or the past life before he rebirth to be Lord Buddha, one of frame panel show one scene of life, all of them are 550 according to Buddhist text, and the king gave reward 1 bath for 1 frame for the artist that was the indeed highly price for those day 200 years ago. Actually, Buddhism believe that everyone human and animal and also spirit in every plant should be rebirth again and again throughout the circle of Karma unless you get the enlightenment.

entrance for free but the parking zone make the temple quite messy.

Convenient temple visit after Wat Arun
May 2014 • Couples
Wat Khrueawan is a small Buddhist temple built during the Ayutthaya period that you can quickly visit after seeing Wat Arun on the west side of the Chao Phraya River.

This temple is located in between Wat Arun and Wat Rakhang and can be seen in just a few minutes. We liked the standing Buddha dressed in what seems like a decorative silk cloak (see pictures) found in the main hall. You can also seen some nice wall murals here at Wat Khrueawan before moving on.

Overall, Wat Khrueawan is not a priority temple visit in Bangkok but it is conveniently located near Wat Arun, making it easy to visit for those wanting to also visit Wat Rakhang.
