Wat Rong Khun, Thailand

It’s Wat Rong Khun in Chiang Mai, Thailand. This temple has a fine blend of traditional Buddhist art with contemporary themes. The temple is almost entirely white, no other colors are used. It is though decorated with small pieces of mirrored glass which add substantially to the temple’s spacious and airy feel. Designed to be viewed in moonlight, if you can manage to get there when the moon is out it’s worth the effort, very nice indeed. This temple is certainly worth a visit unless you have limited time.
