Photographer's Note

Hello TE-friends,
after a long time I thought is would be wonderful to present you a shot from Thailand.
This is one of the most impressive temples I have ever seen. Real artwork, you can walk there for hours and will always find something new to look at.

This is Wat Rong Khun (Thai: วัดร่องขุ่น), a contemporary unconventional buddhist temple in Chiang Rai, Thailand.
It was designed by Chalermchai Kositpipat. Construction began in 1997.
Normaly the temples in Thailand are golden and full of colours, not so this one.
It is designed only in white color with some use of white glass.
The white color stands for Lord Buddha’s purity; the white glass stands for Lord Buddha’s wisdom that "shines brightly all over the Earth and the Universe."

I hope you like this one,
thanks for looking and any words.
Enjoy your day

Sabine
