Thailand – Pamela visits the White Temple of Thailand

My journey starts from Chiang Mai towards Chiang Rai, and just 15 km from the latter is the wonderful and extravagant Wat Rong Khun, better known as the "White Temple". The stop here is a must … Like other wonders around the world, this temple too has the ability to leave its visitors speechless! Click here now to discover our accessible travel for the disabled in Thailand! It is a work of contemporary artist Chalermchai Kositpipat who, discovering Buddhism in 1992 through monastic experiences, decides to start the renovation of Wat Rong Khun in 1997. But what I didn't know is that the temple has not yet been fully completed. . Chalermchai is instructing some of his disciples so that they can complete it after his death. Certainly you are not in front of the classic golden or brightly colored Thai temples. The white color was chosen by the artist to represent the purity of the Buddha and its hand-made inlays are treated in detail. The "White Temple" was inspired by elements of Buddhism such as nagas, lotus flowers and lanna elements. The artist developed and modeled them by enriching them with ornaments. Finally, this splendid construction was surrounded by tubs, fountains and bridges of transparent glass tiles that symbolize the wisdom of the Buddha. Inside, the temple houses a wax statue of the abbot of the wat accompanied by loud pop-thai music.
