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.

Black House – Baan Dam Museum in Chiang Mai

Besides White Temple and Blue Temple, Back House (Baan Dam) is also a place worth visiting in Chiang Rai. It is the unique creation of national artist, Thawan Duchanee. In Thai, 'baan' means home or house and 'dam' means black. Part art studio, part museum, part home, Baan Dam is an eclectic mix of traditional northern Thai buildings interspersed with some outlandish modern designs. It is a collection of around 40 buildings of varying shapes and sizes dotted around a peaceful garden. The cluster of houses accommodates Thawan's collections of paintings, sculptures, animal bones, skins, horns, and silver and gold items from around the world.

Unique White Temple in Chiang Rai

Wat Rong Khun, better known as “the White Temple” is one of the most recognizable temples in Thailand. Designed by Chalermchai Kositpipat, a famous Thai visual artist, the temple is filled with Buddhist symbolisms, from its layout, architecture, all the way to the ornate reliefs and mirror decorations. Wat Rong Khun is a unique temple that stands out through the white color and the use of pieces of glass in the plaster, sparkling in the sun. The white color signifies the purity of the Buddha, while the glass symbolizes the Buddha’s wisdom and the Dhamma, the Buddhist teachings.The temple opens daily from 8am until 6pm.Dress respectfully, take off shoes before entering a temple building are things to keep in mind when visiting any temple in Thailand.
