White Temple in Chiang Rai Thailand

If you are in the north of Thailand you will find an amazing piece of art called Wat Rong Khun or White Temple.   It is privately owned and very unconventional with paintings of pop culture like Michael Jackson, Harry Potter, Spiderman, Freddy Krueger, and Neo from the movie The Matrix among many others.  For more photos see the blog of  travelphotoreport.com

You can see the top is bent over.  It was damaged on May 5, 2014 from a 6.1 earthquake.  The buildings were inspected and found to be sound.  Repairs are being done.

These are charms to write wishes on

   I think she is kind of cute!

The only time I have seen Vince with Bling!  The surfaces are embedded with tiny mirrors

Paintings inside the temple.  Here we have a rocket ship, city skyline and other strange things.

  1. Great and inspiring pictures. Can you believe it I still haven't made it down there. Hahahahaha. I'm so lazy. And now my camera is gone (it was stolen), so I definitely can't go yet. Sigh. :P

    1. That really sucks big time, Lani. So sorry to hear that. I always enjoy the photos you post on your blog. Take care in the Rai.

    2. Nah, it's okay. It's my bad luck of the year, over and done with already!

  2. Thank you! In all fairness you do have a job and it is SO far out of town for you :) Sorry about your camera. When you get another you can visit when there are nearly no people! I wish we would have had more time.

    1. Yeah....I'll get over there - eventually. Hahahaha.
