White Temple at Chiangrai

Thailand, Chiang Rai Guide (B): White Temple at Chiangrai

I visited many temples from Buddhist to Hindus and this one is uniquely beautiful out of all. The most unconventional Buddhist temple I ever been to.

Wat Rong Khun or more well known as White Temple is in Chiang Rai, Thailand. This is not a ruined or even historical place. This place built in year 1997 by noted Thai painter who turned architect and still in progress. To me the building it self from far look so majestic and enchanted. 

The main building is painted white as its symbolize Buddha's purity. Most astonished that this place is covered in mosaics of mirrors which give amazing sparkling effect under the sun. I bet it look awesome beautiful at night too but it may be scary at night. You know what I mean if you read further.

The hanging head. This is what I mean...gosh! this White Temple is full of bizarre and horror creatures face. Just imagine walking at night and stumble onto that head....Ommaaaaa!!!!

To reach the temple you have to walk over a bridge over the moat filled with innumerable sculptures of out reaching arms. Another horror reaching out effect here. Look like hell imagination to me. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
