Wat Rong Khun: Heaven and Hell on Earth

Wat Rong Khun or the White Temple in Thailand is the place where you can feel the atmosphere of hell and heaven. It looks like a magic castle. Its size, architectural style and interior are almost beyond imagination.

The White Temple was designed in 1997 by Chalermchai Kositpipat, a Thai artist. The construction work is expected to be finished by 2070. Can you imagine its magnitude? It is the case when people say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Absolutely stunning detail on this. What does it signify or explain about Buddha? And other than a beautiful visual display what is its true meaning? I was in Thailand back in the 60s and there was nothing that compares to this.
