This temple has amazing art work, and very detail scupltures. It worth visit if u came to Chiang Rai. But since its so famous, beware for a lot of tourists in this place. The golden building which is a restroom also nice attraction.

My first impression of this temple was WOW as the private owner that designed it was amazing. Everything was white but very nicely done.

Unique temple in Chiang Rai. Certainly has changed in ten years though. Certainly worth a visit while in Northern Thailand.

The one and only where the temple is decorated by white color. I suggest to visit there in the morning and do avoid the weekend as there are more tourists on Saturday and Sunday.

Beautiful Crystal temple. Strange decor inside and weird hands coming from the ground. A must see in Chiang rai.

It is very touristy to also a very unique location to visit. Despite the number of visitors, the location seems well organised.

Honestly, this must be seen for the white aspect, the cleanliness and for the architectur of the different buildings. But I'm not sure that this temple is in link with the buddhist philosophy (pictures of Spiderman, Terminator,....on the wall of the temple). Anyway !!

To enter the temple you must have shoulders and knees covered. Although it is privately owned it is respected as a sacred place.

It also depends on the weather. If it is raining in that evening, then maybe the place closes earlier.
