The White and the Gold

The White and the Gold

This temple I stumbled upon in Pai is called something like Mae She Thai Patthana Chit Chaloem Phra Kiait. Surprisingly, there is no information about it on the internet. I talked to a nun and she told me that it’s a women’s monastery (although men are allowed to visit). I have no idea when it was build or what is the meaning of its numerous statues. However, I like the evident symbolism of merging the opposites. The white and the gold, the red and the blue are so harmoniously intertwined.
