Wat Rong Khun, commonly referred to as the White Temple, is a contemporary unconventional Buddhist and Hindu temple in Chiang Rai, Thailand. It was designed by National Artist Mr. Chalermchai Kositpipat. Construction for Wat Rong Khun began in 1997 and continues to this day.
White Temple is different from any other temple in Thailand, as its ubosot (Pali: uposatha; consecrated assembly hall) is designed in white color with some use of white glass. The white color stands for Lord Buddha’s purity; the white glass stands for Lord Buddha’s wisdom that "shines brightly all over the Earth and the Universe."
We would like to recommend you the temple called ” Rong Suea Ten” or the Blue Temple which was built by the student of
Mr. Chalermchai Kositpipat who built The famous White Temple.
Blue Temple was established in October 27th,2005 and successfully complete in January 22nd,2016 ( The temple is already 1 year now.) It is on the area of 6 acres. Blue color represents the Dharma, the Lord Buddha virtue code of moral that spread all over the world becomes the doctrine of logically naturalistic as the bright blue sky. This temple displays the contemporary Buddhist art that implied the Lord Buddha ‘s doctrine. The concept led the Buddhist to turn back and study the Dhrama in order to apply for their daily life as well as for whom demanded to study this for withdrawal from the round of existences that called ” The 4 Noble Truths”, gospel truth and the Eightfold Path ( The path that lead people to the extinguish of sufferings.)
