White Temple Wonders

As final exams and year end approach, I’ve had more and more free time to wander and explore. Conversely, due the death of the laptop and limited free media space on the blog, I’ve fallen behind posting glimpses of my life in Thailand. I shall attempt to get caught up before my next big adventure.

I thought I’d come not to have expectations of temples but I found being greeted by skulls and Pinhead at the White Temple in Chiang Rai admittedly flustering.

The hands of desire and even the all-white ubosot distracting.

The many faces of Hell somehow more daunting, especially on feet.

The tree of wishes was certainly more pleasing,

the silver Buddha more soothing, and the view from the ubosot more calming.


I was feeling sorted until I entered the gallery and came across this painting titled “Love”.

The artist, Chalermchai Kositpipat certainly has a unique point of view and his works can lead to interesting conversations. Superheros and space cadets… what’s not to love.
