Visiting the Wat Rung Khun in Chiang Rai

The Wat Rung Khun in Chiang Rai - Thailand

Or better know as the White Temple. It is located about 13km 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.
