Despite looking like an elaborate set design for an upcoming Hollywood film, the Wat Rong Khun or White Temple is very much a real temple found in Thailand. Unsurprisingly it is a tourist hotspot, with many making the journey to catch a glimpse of the stunning feat of architecture. It is actually a very modern piece of architecture, having been constructed in 1997 by Chalermchai Kositpipat. Truly a work of art, the White Temple features some awe-inspiring designs, not to mention the amazing crisp whiteness maintained across the building. Sadly it took some damage in a recent earthquake in Mae Loa, but the Buddhist temple will see repairs made to it over the next few years.
