White Temple Sunset
White Temple Sunset: Gremlins, soldiers and other mystical guardians stand before Wat Rong Khun( better known as the White Temple) at sunset, Chiang Rai Thailand.
The temple is predominantly white and is latterly covered in detail. Hands reach up from the ground in pain, some holding begging bowls or skulls. Snakes, gremlins, skulls, horns and mystical creatures permeate the scene. A bridge runs through the horror on to the main temple that represents nirvana. In the background trees partially cover the setting sun. This is a contemporary Buddhist and Hindu temple designed by Thai artist Chalermchai Kositpipat.
