The temple is absolutely amazing - so many details to study. Really like the story that is told in sculptures and paintings about going to the other side from hell to heaven. Please also remember to visit to worlds most wonderful golden toilet building.
It is not allowed to take photos of the paintings inside the Wat, but for only 50 baht you can buy a booklet with beautiful photos in the souvenir shop.
I went about one week before the earthquake on 5th of May. I hope they will do everything they can to renovate the damages and open it up to the public again soonest possible.
All the best for Wat Rong Khun!

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!
