CHIANGMAI TRAVEL : UNCONVENTIONAL BUDDHIST TEMPLE IN CHIANG RAI


white temple in Thailand


I visited many temples from Buddhist to Hindus and this one is uniquely beautiful out of all. The most unconventional Buddhist temple I ever been to. 

Wat Rong Khun or more well known as White Temple is in Chiang Rai, Thailand. This is not a ruined or even historical place. This place built in year 1997 by noted Thai painter who turned architect and still in progress. To me the building it self from far look so majestic and enchanted.

The main building is painted white as its symbolize Buddha's purity. Most astonished that this place is covered in mosaics of mirrors which give amazing sparkling effect under the sun. I bet it look awesome beautiful at night too but it may be scary at night. You know what I mean if you read further.

stone heads hanging from trees

The hanging head. This is what I mean...gosh! this White Temple is full of bizarre and horror creatures face. Just imagine walking at night and stumble onto that head....Ommaaaaa!!!!

white bridge across moat

To reach the temple you have to walk over a bridge over the moat filled with innumerable sculptures of out reaching arms. Another horror reaching out effect here. Look like hell imagination to me.

hands

Apparently , those reaching out hands symbolizing DESIRE.
I saw people throwing money in that moat. huhuhuhuh...

Once inside , amazingly I was greeted but non traditional Buddha life scenarios. I wish I could snap photo but no photo allow in the temple.  The inside mural full of contemporary scenes and icons. More like good and evil fighting kind of scenes. The artist still put in a Buddhist context though. 

Do you believe me if I said they even painted Batman, Superman and even Minion in that temple. Not to mentioned they have a spaceships painted on the wall too. I was like...WTH! 

However, amidst of all those chaos fighting the evils and those destructions they have golden flowers surrounding sits a peaceful white Buddha in front of an even larger Buddha.

white architecture

Wat Rong Khu is still a work in progress and will be more interesting in future.

main hall of white temple

This place also known as a learning and meditation center for people to practice dharma. So surrounding the main white temple is planned for more buildings like preaching hall, museum, pavillion and others. This place is pretty big like around 3 acres if I'm not mistaken!

bell-shaped architecture

Wanna wish upon the Buddha? Pay 30 THB to write your wish on that metal things and then hang it on this bell looking place.

I wanted to pee and decided to walk to the toilet way at the back.

Lord Ganesh statue

On the way to toilet saw Lord Ganesh statue.

guardian statue

In front of toilet ...Ommmaaaaa!!!! they have this horror looking guardian right in front. WTH! Gosh! I wish there is more human here in the toilet that creepy creatures as guardian. Seriously , my quickest peeing ever!

red skulls on street barriers and street cones

The street barrier and cones is with skull head. huhuhuhuh... this artist is full of creepy imagination. If I am driving and my car stuck near Wat Rong Khun...I will be in mental breakdown state due too scared.

Different between Rebonding and Keratin Treatment

Frizzy Hair Solution Naturally, I born wavy and wild frizzy hair. I hate that frizzy hair style. It make me look untidy and less attractive. WTH! Don't throw up please!!!! The only solution to my knowledge all this while is rebonding hair treatment. I have been doing this almost every year. I am worried about getting my hair ironed every year. Gosh! I am not getting anymore younger so does my hair. How long this poor hair of mine can stand that heavy chemical treatment coated on and flat iron it with the heat straightening iron.

Cosmoderm Luminous A Retinol Review

In general, most people are advised to start using retinol in their mid-20s. Why do we need retinol for our skin? Well, this is because collagen and elastin production starts to slow down. Adding retinol into our skincare routine at age of 25 to 30 is the perfect time to slow down the ageing process. So, what is retinol that people are hyping about? In short, retinol is a topical product containing a vitamin A derivative. Technically speaking a type of retinoid which works to increase collagen production. It helps to treat acne, and blackheads and is also ideal to improve skincare texture such as minimising fine lines, and wrinkles and brightening dull skin. Personally, I am a beginner in adding Retinol into my skincare routine. At the age of 47 years old.
