Chiang Rai, Thailand - Polarsteps

Chiang Rai is the city of colored temple! Here we are , visiting the Blue Temple... I feel that the Blue Temple (Wat Rong Suea Ten) is not yet as highly rated as the others because it is so new and therefore relatively undiscovered. Building commenced in 2005 and finished in 2016. The beauty of its vibrant blue color and a more spiritual place than other temple make it a really nice place to be. Outside the snake like creatures, or Nagas, are semi-divine beings which are potentially dangerous but beneficial to humans. They are positioned either side of the entrance staircase to protect the temple. Inside it's stunning,it is decorated with Buddhist art depicting scenes from the life of Siddhartha Gotama Buddha...
