Wat Rong Khun in Chiang Rai


Wat Rong Khun
Chiang Rai

Wat Rong Khun is very different to any of temple you are likely to see in Thailand. A lifetime project of artist Chalermchai Kositpipat, the temple has a fine blend of traditional Buddhist art with contemporary themes. The temple is almost entirely white - no other colors are used at all.

It is though decorated with small pieces of mirrored glass which add substantially to the temple's spacious and airy feel. Designed to be viewed in moonlight, if you can manage to get there when the moon is out it's worth the effort - very nice indeed. This temple is certainly worth a visit unless you have limited time.

How to get there: Located about 5 kilometers to the south of Chiang Rai on highway No.1 the place can be accessed by public songteaws, if you do not have your own transport.
