The White Temple near Chiang Rai.

Chiang Rai’s famous White Temple (Wat Rong Kun) was seriously damaged in an earthquake on May 6th 2014.

I was fortunate enough to see it in it’s full glory back in March 2011 when I spent a week in Chaing Rai, investigating the local surrounds on a very nice Merida Crossway Bicycle, rented from the local ‘Fat Free Bicycle Shop’ .

I gather the artist that spent about 20 years on this work of art has said it is beyond what he can contemplate to repair it and wants it left as it is.

There are may videos on YouTube – mine is below
