1. Sanctuary of Truth is the real Object'd Art initialte by the late Lek Viriyaphan - same one who create Erawan Shrine in 1999. This Sanctuary of Truth is all made from wood - more like a museum of arts byt with the sactuary of shrine ...

2. Wat Rong Khun - temple in Chiang reai made by the outspoken Lanna Artist - Cjhaloemchai Khositphiphat ... it is antoehr real Object'd Art temple with the art of Par Excellent

For the Siompel temple - take a look at Rama IX Temple for this matter.

FOr the cvase of Wat Rogn Khun is was originally on 2 Rai of land and now ther is 9 Rai of land due to the donation and it is the real temple since there is an abbot.

You are allowed to take a photo outside but you are nto allowed to a photo of Wat Rong Khun Inside:

BTW, it would take 60-70 years to finish all 9 Ubosoth - after the starting point in 1997.
In 10 years (1997 - 2007), the construction cost is already 180 million Baht and ONLY one Ubosoth is DONE.

Official Website of Wat Rongkhun is here: http://www.watrongkhun.com/
