Beautifully crafted architecture, unlike the rest of the temples in Chiang Rai. White plaster lined with mirror pieces makes for eye catching style.

If you decide to come here I suggest preparing yourself with the knowledge that this is an art exhibit more than anything else. So, like a lot of art exhibits, there’s a gift shop at the end and people taking lots of photos (aka selfies)....More

Architecturally its a very impressive. Made of white cement with embedded mirror tiles. However it is spiritually empty as the attendants hurry you along after you have paid your 50 baht entrance. You are encouraged to pay for little slivers of wish amulets to hang...More
