The woman was taking photos on the top of the stairs

Shot at Wat Arun, a Buddhist temple in Bangkok, Thailand.

There was a ferry landing near Tha Tien Market. Leaving the tranquil market, I headed for the landing. And I clambered aboard a ferry to cross the wide Chao Phraya River.

The ferry arrived at the opposite side of the river soon. It went alongside the site of Wat Arun, a famous Buddhist temple. When I got off the ferry, I entered its precinct at the same time.

In the center of the precinct, a big stupa, which is a symbol of this temple, towered. And there were many tourists around the stupa because this temple is one of the major tourist destinations in Bangkok. It is said that the stupa was fashioned after Mount Meru, the center of all the physical, metaphysical and spiritual universes. However, it was difficult to feel the otherworldly atmosphere here. Many travelers around the stupa were taking photos in random places to make memories of the trip.
