Thailand’s Wat Rong Khun (“white temple”) is a privately owned art exhibit in the style of a Buddhist temple. Designed to depict Nirvana, the structure and its surrounding areas was created by Chalermchai Kositpipat, a visual artist recognized for his use of Buddhist imagery in his art. The structure has been open to visitors since 1997 and additions are still being made to the white temple by Kositpipat and his team. He has committed to continue to build this complex for the rest of his life.
