wat rong khun

    Newer Older

    I've been showing some bits and pieces of this white temple, this is what it looks like as a whole.

    This "Wat rong khun" located thirteen kilometer before reaching Chiang Rai city, see the geo map for details. It is the artist's (mr. Chalermchai) intention to make this his masterpiece temple to exhibit his art to the world. So far he's
    succeeding with the number of tourist increasing each year to come and see this extraordinary 'white temple' He started this project in 1997 and spend over 30 million baht. He plans to complete this temple in the next three years. There are nine other structures to be decorated similar to this one, and that will take many more years to complete. He plans so that the construction work will continue his art legacy even after his death.

    Here's the process in making these fatabulous decoration. It will leave no question why it takes so long to finish!
