Wat Rong Khun, Chiang Rai Overview

Wat Rong Khun is an architectural wonder filled with Buddhist elements.

Famously known as the White Temple, Wat Rong Khun was built by the brilliant artist Chalermchai Kostipitat. The temple shows architecture poortraying the well known Buddhist teachings of heaven, hell and karma. The ornate white color of the temple symbolises the purity of Buddha and his Dhamma teachings. The entrance of the temple is over a bridge below which there are skulls and grasping hands representing hell, and crossing the bridge and reaching the temple represents entry to heaven. It's a very unique sight and a must-do for all the travellers.
