woensdag, februari 6th, 2019

Wat Rong Kun (Thai: วัด ร่อง ขุ่น), misschien beter bekend bij buitenlanders als de Witte Tempel, is een eigentijdse, onconventionele, particuliere kunsttentoonstelling in de stijl van een boeddhistische tempel in de provincie Chiang Rai, Thailand. Het is eigendom van Chalermchai Kositpipat, die het in 1997 ontwierp, bouwde en opende voor bezoekers. Geboren 1955 in chiangrai, afgestudeerd bij Silpakorn Universiteit.

Na voltooiing zal het witte tempelcomplex negen gebouwen bevatten, waaronder de bestaande ubosot, hal van relikwieën, de meditatie hal, een kunstgalerie en woonruimten voor monniken.

Toegangsprijs tot de witte tempel

De toegang voor de witte Tempel is gratis voor Thai en voor toeristen kost het 50 baht/pp dus minder dan 2 euro per persoon.

Ligging van Wat Rong Kun vanuit chiangrai

15 kilometer ten zuid westen van de stad Chiang rai. Goed te bereiken dus echt een leuke dagtrip. Zo zijn er natuurlijk ook toeristen winkeltjes en restaurantjes om te eten. Ideaal ook voor onze tuk-tuk chauffeur, als je hem laat wachten. 🙂

Indrukwekkend

Van alle tempels die er zijn in Thailand is dit echt wel heel bijzonder! Wij kennen ook mensen die andere tempels mooier vinden bijvoorbeeld de blauwe nieuwere tempel. Maar het beste kun je zelf oordelen.

The place was beautiful. The temple was crowded probably cause of the peak season. This is family friendly place , lot... of stuffs you will discover . The place is well maintained and properly managed. Reaching to the temple is fairly easy using public transport or private. There are also lot of shops nearby to try our local cuisines. There are also souvenirs shops around and fair pricelees meer

An absolute masterpiece, a serious work of art. Everywhere you look, you notice something original and unique. You need... to see for yourself to understand. Worth the trip just to see! Take your time it's not in and out you will get lost in its beauty.lees meer

Absolutely gorgeous. Save some money and take the blue bus from the station in the city central. It’s 20THB and about... a 25 min ride. If you’re staying nearby, the schedule is posted in spot 8, where the bus departs from. As others say, I’d recommend heading there just before close or just after open. Closes at 530 on the weekend days (I thought it was 5), or you’ll be waiting behind people taking pictures with 17 different poses in front of each interesting thing.lees meer

Very Beautiful Temple. It’s amazing to see. 100baht entry but well worth it. Luckily we were there about 2-3pm near... closing time so less tourist were there but it was burning hot. Next day we came at 11am but decided not to go in as it was really crowded. Decided to eat at the shop which the designer of the temple goes to eat. Cheap and good.lees meer

It is really a temple very different from any other you've seen before. The structure and its construction attract a... lot of attention due to its high level of detail. The interior of the temple is relatively simple considering the exterior appearance. It is important to consider that you cannot take pictures inside the temple. As in any other temple, you have to be respectful with the way you dress. There's a lot of tourists, so I recommend spending at least 1:30 h to be able to see the place in general.lees meer

The White Temple is n real art temple . The architecture Full of meaning in every detail. Recommends to book the ticket... first before you come here because a lot of visitor anytime . There are some food shop or restaurants near the temple you also can have the lunch very convenient.really like the white color with the silver color and the stories about to heaven and hell . Come here before you check some architecture history and preview the artist backgrounds about this artwork that will be more helpful when you see the whole building. It is very beautiful and touching .Here is a little bit far from Chiang Mai city around three hours. But is really worthy 🙏🏼lees meer

Absolutely loved this temple! This temple is more of an art exhibit than an actual temple. There’s a lot of pop... culture in the design, which I found to be really unique. I haven’t seen any other temple like this throughout my travels in Asia. Definitely worth the trip in my opinion! It does get crowded so I’d recommend trying to visit early. This temple is definitely about taking in the beauty and unique details throughout the grounds.lees meer

This place is just amazing!1) The architecture is stunning. No need to describe further, it’s clear from all the... pictures.2) The main temple walls are painted with a storyline which we found completely amazing. It’s just a tiny room but we spent like half an hour looking at every detail.3) the museums (both the golden building inside and the free gallery outside) have tons of amazing artwork by the artist (paintings, sculptures and tiny casted figures) which are all beautifulThe artist is without a doubt a tenuous, and this temple makes the visit to Chang Rai worth on it’s own!lees meer

We did the light fest, the Illumination of the White Temple for the first showing at 6:30 pm. There are 6 stations and... you walk around from 6:30 - 7:15 pm to stations 1-5. They all have light shows that are on a 2 min loop. After 7:15 pm, you can get your assigned seats at station 6 where the main show with actors begins at 7:30 pm. It ends around 8 pm. The light show was awesome, station 2 was my favorite. The 1000 baht VIP seats at the main show look straight at the presentation while the 400 baht seats are off the side. There is no buffet as advertised so make sure to eat before arriving. We had a 4 year old with us and everyone enjoyed it!lees meer

Stunning temple although a bit creepy with some of those sculptures. Pretty thought provoking. Fun to walk around... although I would try get there before the crowds as we were there at a busy time and it was a bit too full. There are also other buildings and temples to walk through on the same grounds which is nice. Although it is known as a tourist destination it is still a temple so I would try cover up as you would for any Thai temple if you go here. There were many tourists walking around in quite revealing outfits which seemed a bit disrespectful.lees meer

Too crowded to stop for any pictures. The guard asked everyone to keep moving 🙁 The temple itself was amazing. You... gotta try putting your hand on any surface of the temple to feel the coolness even though it was very hot outsideThere was a restaurant on the opposite side serving BBQ pork and chicken. Highly recommended!lees meer

If you like Disney you will love this park/temple....but if you do not like theme park temples - you can skip this... theme park temple. Completely lacks any substance. It is white and nice but that is where it ends. I am still not sure where the references to the teen age mutant turtles or aliens fit in and if it is even legal. Certainly not my favorite temple in Thailand and unless you really like Disney - you should skip this temple.lees meer

Bereikbaar

Via de hoofdweg goed bereikbaar. De kosten voor tuk-tuk taxi zijn 300 baht heen en terug maar zorg wel dat je van te voren afspraken maakt.

Achtergrond informatie over de witte tempel

Honderden uitgestoken handen die symbool staan voor ongebreidelde verlangens tijdens de weg naar geluk. Naast het meer staan twee zeer elegante Kinnaree, half menselijke, half-vogel wezens uit de boeddhistische mythologie. De witheid, dat symbolisch staat voor de puurheid van het Buddhism, de architectuur en vormgeving en de uniekheid van Wat Rong Kun maken uw bezoek de moeite meer dan waard.
