Even the first view of the main temple and associated buildings will amaze you with its articulation and bright white color.

Decoration.

There is a huge emphasis on detail everywhere, including the decoration of the surroundings.

The most magnificent public toilets in the world? Maybe in Dubai, but definitely here in Chiang Rai.
