In most cases, the pagodas are colored with gold in Southeastern countries. Yet the color is not seen in this pagoda. The pagoda is colored with white in Wat Arun. Therefore, the color makes the pagoda being in a different league.

The white color expresses the whiteness of Buddha's teeth in Buddhism. And it means the sanctitude against the earthly desires. So this pagoda expresses a state of peace and quiet. However, there were many tourists around it and it was difficult to feel peace there. The tourists were enjoying the massive architecture in their own way.
