Absolutely loved the White Temple. Great architecture and attention to detail. Loved the bridge to the other side, the paintings inside the temple and the super-fancy toilets!

Me and my friends really liked it. No need to spend all day there, but totally worth the visit.

This temple is relatively new and is the work of a local Chiang Rai artist. It's not your typical temple. You'll be greeted with an emerging Predator from the ground and hanging heads - but don't let that deter you. Its beautiful and free to visit!

I visited on the 7th May 2014
The temple was damaged in the recent earthquake so visitors can't go inside it or walk around the whole complex. You can only walk up to the main entrance and down the side by the road. Having said that, I thought the temple looked amazing and was well worth the trip!

Very beautifully designed and breathtaking architecture! There is a silver Temple and a Golden toilet! Also small Museum, Souvenir shop, Cafe and a Bus stop.
Other reviewers have already said a lot about it. Its a different kind of temple and there are no monks! I only want to say - If you are in Chiang Rai, this Temple is a must see! and if you are in Chiang Mai, just travel to see this Temple! I visited it in afternoon and it was pretty hot at this month. Better go morning or evening.
