Wat Rong Khun Buddhist Temple, Thailand

Wat Rong Khun is a spectacular Buddhist Temple in Chiang Rai,  Thailand.
The unconventional and incredibly complex architecture of the temple made it a very popular attraction. It can be compared to the iconic  Sagrada Família in Barcelona; still unfinished with construction expected to complete in 2070 the Wat Rong Khun temple is not at all a common Buddhist place of worship.
The place is truly amazing, it has a design originality beyond compare and the attention to detail is impressive.
The buildings are all white in order to inspire the idea of purity and they are covered with mirror mosaics so seeing them shine in the sun is quite a view.
It is best to visit the Wat Rong Khun temple in the morning as it's a popular attraction so it gets quite crowded during the day.
