Visiting the Wat Rung Khun in Chiang Rai

Traveling in North Thailand
Wat Rung Khun in Chiang Rai

The Wat Rung Khun is better know as the White Temple and is located about 13 km south of Chiang Rai town. Although it is a beautiful piece of art, personally I would not call it a temple. I did not see any monks, besides the fact that the main building is housing an beautiful Buddha image. To quote the Wikipedia "It is a contemporary, unconventional, privately owned, art exhibit in the style of a Buddhist temple. It is owned by Chalermchai Kositpipat, who designed, constructed, and opened it to visitors in 1997. " Personally I think it is a bit in Gaudi style and I had the idea to see also some similarities to the Sanctuary of Truth in Pattaya. But well it is beautiful and a great opportunity for making photos and selfies.
