How beautiful a temple could be? Take a look at this White Temple and be in awe! It was created as an arts museum in Thailand.
Its proper name is Wat Rong Khun. It was erected in 1997 and is privately owned. The ancient builders have left us many beautiful creations that stood the test of time. Now we have to do our share of work to create something amazing for the contemporary people and the generations to come.

Certainly Wat Rong Khun is listed among such creations. This temple was created for a special purpose. It is meant for education and meditation. People can come here to calm their minds and open them up for new knowledge.
They plan to build over 10 halls on the temple territory. But even now the unfinished place amazes by its whiteness and beauty. It has become a major attraction for tourists. Some of its parts and decorations seem to be made out of the snow or ice.
It has a bridge and gates (one of them is called Gate of Heaven); it also has some golden structures. Two years ago in 2014 the temple suffered much from the local earthquake. Some structures had to be demolished because they became dangerously unstable. The architect refused to rebuild them. Still the beauty of the place amazes!
