Wat Rong Khun - วัดร่องขุ่น - The White Temple




Wat Rong Khun is a strange twist on the traditional Buddhist Temples - it is in white. To many people it is known as the White Temple.



It is actually a privately owned Buddhist Temple - it is owned by and designed by Chalermchai Kositpipat - a Thai visual artist who has travelled over Asia - specifically Hindu architecture - and put together his experiences, even coming to the notice of King Bhumibol Adulyadej.



Well it is really quite spectacular - even reaching the number one attraction in Chiang Rai on TripAdvisor



Well there is not a lot more I feel that I can add to these photographs - visually magnificent and from a mind of someone special. 



These are the toilets - and inside they are immaculate.



Then I am sure that the designer watched Alien?



This is the dangers of drink...

With being visually so stunning this has meant that it can be quite crowded with coaches of tourists at about 11am.
