About Blue TempleUnlike most temples in Chiang Rai, Blue Temple is a recent addition to its collection of exquisite temples. Built in 2005 over the ruins of an ancient shrine, this temple is dedicated to the tigers that inhabited the region once. Wat Rong Seua Ten, known as Blue Temple by outsiders, is an exemplifying blend of modern art and traditional architecture in Chiang Rai.
The intricate designs gracing its facade, roofs, and walls, contrast created by golden-blue colours, and brilliantly carved white idols of Buddha are noteworthy.
