White Temple (Wat Rong Khun)

By Wilbur Suen

One of the most popular destinations in Chiang Rai is the White Temple, also known as Wat Rong Khun. You haven’t been to Chiang Rai if you did not pay a visit to Chiang Rai!

It’s uniquely different from the other buddhist temples which you can find in Thailand. White Temple is designed by a Thai artist, Khun Chalermchai Khositpipat.

You might be asking why is White Temple white? The white actually symbolises Buddha’s purity and wisdom.

All around the complex, you can find sculptures. Here is a predator coming up from the ground!

This is the only golden building here and it’s also called “Golden Toilet”. The toilet is beautiful, I must say.
