  Wat Rong Khun

 

Thailand

The bot of Wat Rong Khun in Chiang Rai. Its Construction started in 1998 and is supervised by Chalermchai Kohsitphiphat, a renowned artist connected to Silpakorn University in Bangkok.

 

This unique temple is made of bright and white building materials ornamented with small pieces of glass, giving it an overwhelming, crystal-like appearance. The white colour represents purity and religion, like in the thong chaht, the Thai national flag (fig.).
