Amazing Seashell Covered Temple

In the hills in the northern part of Taiwan there is a small temple covered almost entirely with seashells; which makes it one of the most amazing architectural works in the world. 
 
 
 
 
Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn, is one of Bangkok's best know landmarks. It stands on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River in Thon Buri. The mosaic designs are created with seashells and bits of porcelain which  had previously been used as ballast by boats coming to Bangkok from China.
 
 
The temple has a small tunnel lined with Buddhist gods at the backside. This tunnel gives an underwater feel. The pictures on the wall of the temple are made of Seashells and Corals. The whole temple is so beautifully decorated with seashells that it takes your breath away.
