Rahu- Decider of the Fates of the Dead
Rahu- Decider of the Fates of the Dead

Wat Rong Khun is a monument/ temple that is located in Chiang Rai, Thailand. It is also more famously called ‘The White Temple’. An older temple that existed in the spot was rebuilt by a local artist- Chalermaichai Kositpipat. As the name indicates the temple is a work in monochrome with small pieces of mirrors embellished all over the walls and sculptures. At the entryway to the temple you see two massive statues- one of Death and the other of Rahu (pictured above) who apparently controls the fate of the dead. The statue is truly awe-inspiring and strikes a bit of fear into the hearts of those who enter.

I’m taking part in the 5 Day Black and White Photo Challenge. There are two rules to the challenge

1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in B&W.
2. Each day invite another blog friend to join in the fun.

Would anybody be interested in participating in this challenge? Let me know in the comments and I’m happy to nominate you.
