White Temple Wat Rong Khun Chiang Rai
Completed in 1997 by Chalermchai Kositpipat, the White Temple Wat Rong Khun Chiang Rai is a beautiful, if unconventional, Buddhist temple just outside of Chiang Rai city in Thailand.
Chalermchai was deeply inspired by Buddhist and Hindu mythology, as well as Western films and pop culture when designing the temple. As a result, the temple features traditional Buddhist imagery mixed with more modern elements like Spiderman, Harry Potter, and Michael Jackson.
