Of the countless places of spectacular beauty to visit in Thailand the Wat Rong Khun is certainly one of the most enchanting and sublime. Its pristine whiteness is unique in a country known for temples which are often an explosion of exuberant colour and design.
This photo is of my dear friend and neighbor, Pae [also known as Justin]. A handsome and charming lad in front of one of my favorite places of utter peace and tranquility.
And this is a photo of the interior of the Wat Rong Khun t last year. On my first visit back in 2000, I was fortunate to watch as the artist/architect was in the process of painting this mural on the back wall of the temple.
For additional photos of this beautiful temple spend some time at the pbase website of Kazuo Lim Khee Boon.
