Wat Rong Khun, more widely known as Thailand's White Temple, is built with a very simple idea in mind. His creator, Chalermchai Kositpipat, wanted to create the most beautiful temple in the world. Undoubtedly, whoever steps inside this temple walks out with an indelible impression of it. There is simply no other place on Earth like Wat Rong Khun.

When you first find yourself standing in front of the temple, you are confronted with a cluster of desperate hands. This is hell - the endless pit of desires and human cravings, according to Buddhism. Once you cross the bridge above the "hell", you are greeted by the statues of the heaven guardians. There's no turning back by this point, the way is only forward. In fact, the guard employed at the temple would actually shout at you if you tried to go backward. The symbolism of crossing the bridge from "hell" to "heaven" signifies the Buddhist path to enlightenment.
