Very beautiful for the eyes., it's the extreme skills of architecture. The engineer is still alive. There are many things to see inside and outside of the temple. Inside there is a statue of a saint that looks like the original.
The history, There was an old temple and this architecture was renovated with his own money. And still, the work going on. For getting a bright color it's made with glasses and special plaster. So it can be protected from sunlight and rain.

Incredible. The 100THB entrance fee is well worth it. The grounds are extensive and social media fans will have a field day despite several no-photo zones. Expect to spend at least 90 minutes here. Note to self.. sunglasses are required.. the white and mirror tiles are very reflective.
One of the most exquisite pieces of architecture I’ve ever seen. It is truly incredible, like a shimmering, glittering white castle in the sun.
It is one of the most beautiful temples in Thailand. Purely white in color with glasses engraved. Architecture has so much detailing and is picture-perfect. The paintings inside the temple walls are amazing.
This is a must-see landmark in Thailand. A remarkable experience for anyone of any age.

As far as the artistry and craftsmanship go.. this temple has it all… Pick a clear day, the temple offers several outdoor photo spots.

It is owned by Chalermchai Kositpipat, who designed, constructed, and opened it to visitors in 1997.


The temple looks more beautiful while sunset time, the sunlight reflects and will glow.
