Currently (as 2013) the majority of the main temple is finished with interior intricate painting to be finished. There are 3 other buildings under construction with plans for more. Kositpipat’s style is ornate and extremely intricate yet unmistakenly unique drawing upon social issues and pop culture as well as classic Thai motif. These shots are taken in the early afternoon.
