A group of tourists lounges in front of the central tower of the Temple of the Dawn. The tower, started in 1809, is covered in sea shells and porcelain.
Josh Buck climbs the side of the main tower to reach a pair of terraces near the top. The tallest point on the tower is about 250 feet tall.
From the top terrace you can see another tower in the temple as well as the Chao Phraya River that runs through Bangkok.
Matt Cartas carefully descends the steep stairs that lead down from the top terrace. It was a little frightening, but as long as you didn’t look down, it wasn’t too bad.
