The White Temple - Wat Rong Khun - Chiang Rai - Thailand

The White Temple - Wat Rong Khun - Chiang Rai - Thailand

Wat Rong Khun also known as The White Temple is probably the most popular attraction in Chiang Rai, I've seen so many beautiful photos of this temple over the years and have always wanted to visit there and this year I finally got the chance to see it with my own eyes, and it was just so stunning.

There are many temples in Thailand but what makes this one unique is it's bright white colour which symbolises the purity of Buddha. The temple is designed by artist Chalermchai Kositpipat and is full of interesting details from the creepy sea of hands by the temple entrance, to the depictions of popular characters like Batman, Sailor Moon and even Pikachu inside the temple, it really is something you need to take in with your own eyes.

There were several bus loads of tourists on the day we visited but there were still lots of quiet areas you could just sit and enjoy the surroundings. The White Temple is the main attraction but there's also a golden temple and patches of greenery where you can sit and meditate, the artist himself also lives on the site and is constantly working on bringing his vision to life because as of now the temple still remains unfinished.

There are so many different temples in Thailand but they never cease to amaze me with their beauty, Wat Rong Khun is really amazing and understandable one of the most popular attractions in Thailand, I really can't wait to see Chalermchai Kositpipat full vision for this temple come to life.

What's the most unique place you've ever visited?
Love & Blessings
