Hello From Northern Thailand!
Posted on November 17 2019
Greetings from Thailand! This is the famous white temple of the city of Chiang Rai, which also has blue and black temples. Chiang Rai was founded in 1262 by King Mangrai, and it was later conquered by the Burmese. In 1432, an earthquake destroyed part of a temple, revealing a hidden jade Buddha statue which became the most revered Buddha statue in the country, and is now located at What Phra Kaeo near the King's palace in Bangkok.
