Ban Rong Khun, Tambon Pa O Don Chai is regarded as one of the most beautiful temples built in this century. A masterpiece of artist Chaloemchai Khositphiphat, famed for his extravagant and unique Buddhism-related paintings, Wat Rong Khun reflects the artist’s grand visions of heaven, hell and Nirvana. The main assembly hall and adjacent area are carved in white with glass mosaics. The walls have been painted with a depiction of heaven and hell. Donations are welcome but should not exceed 10,000 Baht as Chalermchai doesn’t want to be under the influence of big donors, even though he’s spent more than 40 million Baht of his own cash.

To get there:
Travel along Phahonyothin roadside at Kilometers 816, approximately 12 kilometers. from the city.
It opens daily from 08.00 a.m. – 05.00 p.m.
