Thailand’s White Temple

Info 1
This is a real place – Wat Rong Khun, better known as the White Temple, a Buddhist temple in Thailand.
Chalermchai Kositpipat, a Thai artist, designed the temple in 1997. It was almost destroyed by an earthquake in May of this year, but Kositpipat was inspired to rebuild the temple after an outpouring of international support urging him not to give up and let the temple crumble.
