Visit The Brilliant Blue Temple - Wat Rong Suea Ten
If you are an enthusiastic temple-goer or just an architecture lover, then when in Chiang Rai, you should not miss a visit to the breathtaking Blue Temple - Wat Rong Suea Ten, a very new member in the colorful temple map of Chiang Rai, besides the White Temple and the Black House. Completed in 2016 with other parts under construction today, the Blue Temple is built in Thai art style by a student of Mr. Chalermchai Kositpipat (the national artist who built the White Temple), therefore, the interior is reminiscent of the White Temple’s design with the kaleidoscopic murals and artworks about the Buddha’s stories. Wat Rong Suea Ten is mostly painted in an eye-catching vibrant blue with overlays of gold features and myriad colorful statues. As relatively a new temple, Wat Rong Suea Ten is still not widely promoted and overcrowded, making your visit a more peaceful spiritual experience.
