Way Rong Khun White Temple Thailand
. Immediately upon entering the grounds of Chiang Rai White Temple, you will realize this contemporary, unconventional temple stands out, even in a country saturation with places of worship.Ghostly heads hang from trees in the temple gardens, trees of metal keys surround a wishing well, skulls top traffic cones and Thailand best golden toilets are available to visitors.Upon entering the temple, you will pass sword wielding demons, hungry hands reaching from the depths as you cross a bridge toward the inner sanctuary, where superheroes and cartoons cavort in traditional Buddhist murals and motifs.All these fearful statues and terrifying demons symbolize a traditional Buddhist messageconquering desire, greed and passion to rise to a state of nirvana but do it in an unforgettably, modern, unique and imaginative way.

Sagrada Familia Spain
. A lot of visitors think that the Sagrada Familia is the same thing as the Cathedral of Barcelona, but it actually officially called the Basilica Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia.This emblematic Barcelona building is famously unfinished, and even though current estimates say it could be done by 2026, there are definite doubts about that! Some residents believe its incompleteness is part of its charm.But not everyone is a fan of the Sagrada Familia George Orwell referred to it as one of the most hideous buildings in the world! Love it or hate it, visiting Gaudi ambitious project will definitely give you something to talk about afterward.Current entry prices start from euro14.80, though if youre on a tight budget looking at the spectacular outside is totally free.
Golden Temple India
. Amritsar, in Western India is home to the incredible Harmandir Sahib, otherwise known as the Golden Temple.Sitting in the centre of a sacred pool, the Golden Temple floats majestically in the centre of the huge walled compound.The temple serves as the headquarters of the Sikh religion, an extremely inclusive, friendly and welcoming religion whose fundamental belief is the equality of all people.This is reflected in the kind nature of the people here, many of whom have very little and sleep on the tiled floors surrounding the temple for days just to be close to it.There is no entrance fee, you can store your shoes for free, eat for free and the entire complex is run by volunteers.It really is a wonderful place and the Golden Temple is of course the main attraction, which comes alive when it glistens in the sunlight.
Kek Lok Si Temple Penang
. Kek Lok Si Temple is the busiest one on the gorgeous island of Penang for a reason it something really special.It a Buddhist temple started in 1890 and a bit like Barcelona La Sagrada Familia, it just keeps on going.There have been new parts constructed ever since and it still going.Kek Lok Si is colourful, crazy and a mix of all kinds of architectural styles, and that probably why we loved it.The only down side is that it a little too full of stalls selling souvenirs, though at least when I visited there was not any pushy sales action.There is no entrance fee to get into the temple and you can climb the stairs all the way to the top if youre up to it I was with my three year old so we paid for the diagonal lift to get up the last part of the complex .
Gangotri in the Indian Himalayas
. Situated at a staggering altitude of 3142 meters or over 10000 feet above sea level, folded in the wraps of the splendid hills of Garhwal Himalayas in India is situated one of the most significant temples of Hinduism Gangotri.What makes it so special, you ask.It the location.Seated at the source of the River Ganga, which is considered a living Goddess for the Hindus all round the world, for a believer, Gangotri makes for a dream, the ideal pilgrimage destination.The place, complete with its aura of spiritual tranquility, is magical Really! Here time stands still very still!

The Hanging Monastery China
. The Hanging Monastery is a small Buddhist temple outside of Datong, China.It clings impressively to a wall of rock, half way up a sheer cliff, supported from the bottom by thin timbers.This amazing and unlikely structure dates all the way back to 491 AD.You feel almost like a bird walking across the cliff face, hanging out over the valley, to peer into the dozens of individual shrines.As the structure is all wooden, you will notice an abundance of fire extinguishers it would be quite a plummet into the valley if the floor caught on fire! You can take a taxi from Datong to see this unique temple for an admission price of 130 yuan.
The Chi Lin temple in Hong Kong
. The Chi Lin nunnery sits majestically in Hong Kong Diamond Hill.The golden pavilion, known as the Pavilion of Absolute Perfection, is juxtaposed with the innumerable grey apartment buildings which surround it.The traditional timber architecture of the temple dates back to the Tang dynasty and are the only remaining buildings of this kind in contemporary Hong Kong.Locals come to escape the metropolis and find respite in the tranquil gardens.For the hungry traveller, a vegetarian restaurant (lunch costs HKD doller100 150) is hidden behind a waterfall and covered by spindly trees.The Chi Lin temple grounds are free to explore.
Kinkaku ji in Kyoto Japan
. Kyoto is filled with beautiful shrines and temples, but in my opinion, none can be compared to the beauty of Kinkaku ji, or the Golden Pavilion.Officially called Rokuon ji, this Buddhist temple has acquired a lot of fame recently and has become one of the most visited places in Japan.Whether you visit during the fall when there are red momiji leaves contrasting the gold, in winter when the gold is topped with pure white snow, in spring with the cherry blossoms, or in summer allowing you to see the beautiful temple golden reflection there is never a bad time to visit this beautiful temple.While it does cost 400 yen to visit, the cost is certainly worth it.

The Holy Spirit Catholic Church Szentlelek templom Hungary
. The most beautiful church Ive visited is also one of the most unique that Ive seen.The Holy Spirit Catholic Church (Szentlelek templom) is found in Paks, a small town in Hungary on the banks of the Danube.The church is made completely out of wood by Hungarian organic architect Imre Makovecz.The spires, included the expected cross, but also has the unusual shapes of a sun, and a crescent moon.The latter, a symbol of Islam, caused quite a stir in the city when they were unveiled.I especially enjoy the sense of flow and movement you get from the overall design of the church.A visit inside to marvel at the beautiful wooden designs is by appointment only.
The Monkey Temple and Stupa in Nepal
. Although mostly famous for it amazing trekking in the Himalayas, Nepal is also home of some of the most breath taking temples and Stupas.I heard about the Swayambhunath or Monkey temple for a while and I could not wait to visit it in person.This enormous Buddhist Stupa is located in Kathmandu, at the top of a hill.Surrounded by ancient sacred trees, it also called the sublime trees in Tibetan.Swayambhunath is one of the most ancient religious sites in Nepal.Although mostly a Buddhist religious site, it importance attracts also Hindus who come to pay respect to this Sacred complex.The stupa consists of a dome where the eyes of the Buddha is looking in all directions with the word Unity in between them.The whole complex is combined of Stupas, a variety of shrines, temples and a stairway of 365 steps that will lead you directly into the temple.There is an entrance fee..Stay in for sunset, it will take your breath away.

100 Chickens Temple China
. To get there, we followed a poorly marked path through a field filled with grazing yaks until we reached a tall staircase carved out of mud.A paved staircase pointed the rest of the way up.It was slow going due to the high altitude, but our effort definitely paid off.We were rewarded with an expansive view of charming old town Shangri la and the snow capped mountains in the distance.Colorful prayer flags flowed across the hills while chickens and pigs meandered around the grounds hunting for food.Aside from a lone caretaker, we were the only ones there, and for once it was surreal to be in the world most populous country and so completely alone.Much of Shangri lahas now sadly been lost to fire.Its tragic destruction makes my memories of the place even more special.You can read more about Shangri la and the temple here.
Garni Temple Armenia
. In a land full of Armenian Monasteries and Churches, it seems slightly out of place and odd to find a Greek style Temple in amongst the dominated Christianity.This peculiarity is one of the things that attracted us to visit Garni and we loved it.Garni Temple is situated out in the countryside, down a hill from the small village of Garni which is about 40 minutes drive from Yerevan.You pay 1000 Armenian Dram to get inside this place is a UNESCO listed World Heritage spot too.It in remote countryside and sparkles in this dreamy landscape.Within the area of Garni Temple, you can admire the stunning views, go inside the main temple, which dates back to the 1st Century!

Ta Prohm Siem Reap Cambodia
. My absolute favorite temple in the world is Ta Prohm inside of the ancient city of Angkor in Cambodia.One thing not everyone knows is that Angkor is the name is an ancient city, not to be confused with its main temple, Angkor Wat.The city has five main temples and once had around 1 million inhabitants, making it the largest city of its time in the early 1200s.Ta Prohm was created over eight hundred years ago, so it actually pre dates most of the trees that exist today.That has caused them to grow through the bricks producing one of the most spectacular views in the world today.The movie Tomb Raider was filmed here because of its true ancient ruins look.
Wat Palad Chiang Mai Thailand
. I had been directed into a temple built within the jungle, enshrining elephants and dragons, the worldly and unworldly side by side.Streams poured out of the hills, culminating into a large rock waterfall overlooking the Chiang Mai skyline.Dogs roamed freely and, above me, a large spider clung to its capacious web.Small bridges and footpaths joined statues of Buddhas, dragons, worshipers, candle holders and stone carvings.I could sense the connectedness of this temple, its people and the earth.It had been built under the pretense of harmony, and I could feel it.
