Wat Rong Khun

My bucket list is already a mile long, but when I learned about Wat Rong Khun today, I had to add it to my list of places to visit. Wat Rong Khun is a modern Buddhist temple still being built since 1996 in Chiang Rai, Thailand. Chalermchai Kositpipat - an artist from Chiang Rai - designed and is in the process of building this White Temple, and chose the color white to symbolize purity. The temple is not expected to be completed until 60 to 90 years after the artist's death.
