History and Symbolism

Construction of Measure Rong Khun commenced in 1997, with Chalermchai Kositpipat envisioning a temple that would reflect his unique artistic perspective and serve as a beacon of hope and inspiration. The design draws heavily on Buddhist cosmology and Thai mythology, blending traditional elements with contemporary interpretations.

The gleaming white facade of the temple represents purity and wisdom, while intricate carvings and sculptures depict scenes from both the Buddha's life and contemporary societal issues. These intricate details invite visitors to contemplate the nature of good and evil, the cycle of reincarnation, and the pursuit of enlightenment.

Architectural Highlights

Measure Rong Khun is a testament to Chalermchai Kositpipat's exceptional artistry and architectural skill. The temple complex comprises several distinct structures, each with its own symbolic significance:

The Ubosot (Ordination Hall): This central structure houses the principal Buddha image and is adorned with shimmering mirrors that reflect the surrounding landscape. The intricate murals within depict scenes from both Buddhist mythology and everyday life.

The Bridge of Cycle Rebirth: Leading to the Ubosot, this bridge symbolizes the journey through life's many stages. Skulls and bones line the pathway, reminding visitors of the impermanence of existence.

The Gates of Heaven and Hell: Flanking the Bridge of Cycle Rebirth are two ornate gates. The Gate of Heaven, adorned with celestial maidens, represents the path to enlightenment, while the Gate of Hell depicts the torments of those who have succumbed to greed, hatred, and delusion.

The Toilet: Unexpectedly, the temple complex also features an elaborate toilet building adorned with sculptures of demons and deities. This unconventional inclusion serves as a satirical commentary on materialism and the pursuit of earthly pleasures.
