Peaceful Rai Saengarun@Chiangrai::Dec 08::

Posted by bebedotcom on Saturday, January 23, 2010 Under: *•.♥..Up to the North

Here again...we decided to stayed in a very nice and peaceful resort named Rai Sangarun again...follow me!!

The bridge leading to the temple represents the crossing over from the cycle of rebirth to the Abode of Buddha. The small semicircle before the bridge stands for the human world. The big circle with fangs is the mouth of Rahu meaning impurities in the mind, a representation of hell or suffering.

Wat Rong Khun is still a work in progress and will be for years to come. It is planned to comprise nine buildings including the ubosot (chapel), pagoda, hermitage, crematorium, monastery hall, preaching hall, museum, pavilion, and rest room facilities which will be built on an area of 7 rai (about 3 acres).
