Chiang Mai : Visit 3 of the most beautiful and famous temples in Chiangrai


Activity Information :

1. Wat Rong Khun perhaps better known to foreigners as the White Temple, is a contemporary, unconventional, privately-owned art exhibit in the style of a Buddhist Temple in Chiang Rai Province , Thailand . It is owned by Chalermchai Kositpipat who designed, constructed, and opened it to visitors in 1997. By the end of the 20th century, the original Wat Rong Khun was in a bad state of repair. Funds were not available for renovation. Chalermchai Kositpipat, a local artist from Chiang Rai, decided to completely rebuild the temple and fund the project with his own money. To date, Chalermchai has spent THB1,080 million of his own money on the project. The artist intends for the area adjacent to the temple to be a center of learning and meditation and for people to gain benefit from the Buddhist teachings. Kositpipat considers the temple to be an offering to Lord Buddha and believes the project will give him immortal life.Today the works are ongoing, but are not expected to be completed until 2070. Admission to the wat compound is free for Thais and THB50 for foreigners. Donations are accepted, but are not to exceed THB10,000, as Chalermchai refuses to be influenced by big donors.

2. Ban Dam or the Black House Museum is located at Nang Lae Subdistrict, Mueang District, Chiang Rai Province, created by Thawan Duchanee which has skill in sculpture painting, has created many works of art In both paintings and sculptures, the black house is a group of houses Lanna art style All are painted in black. 

3. Rong Suea Ten Temple ( Blue Temple ) is a temple built with Thai traditional art that is beautiful from the skill of Mr. Puttha Kapkaew or Sala, the local artist of Chiang Rai Who had been a student of Chalermchai Kositpipat and had worked at Rong Khun Temple The construction of the temple is unique by using shades of blue, blue and gold.
