Wat Rong Khun, or the White Temple, is located in Chiang Rai, Thailand and is one of the most unique destinations in Southeast Asia. The temple is a place of worship and is covered in ornate designs. The pure white color of the building is meant to symbolize the purity of the Buddha and nearly everything about the temple depicts a religious or symbolic meeting. The building was completely restored around 1997 and was designed by the same man who funded it.
