Having recently visited Angkor Wat, to visit a Wat of the modern era is completely different. I was though impressed and would recommend a visit to anyone.The exterior is like something out of a C S Lewis novel, the 'pop culture' interior decoration is rich with symbolism derived from Buddhist traditions with a very much modern twist.
I do not want to say to much, as to do so will lesson the surprise. Just visit and make up your own mind.

Whatever your plans are, don't miss this temple.
It's beautiful, breathtaking and nothing you expect to see in Thailand.
We've been there for an hour, and managed to see it all. It is very interesting to see how the artist built this temple sees the world and we are the one affecting it with our own hands.
Don't come in shorts higher than your knees. If you do, they do provide something (like a robe) to cover yourselves.

This place has good and bad points. It's a bit like an iced cake, but it's different. If you're expecting a typical temple you're going to be disappointed. If you're expecting a made for tourism, tourist attraction and look at it light heartedly you won't be disappointed and will enjoy the experience.

No trip to Chang Rai would be complete without have a look at the White Temple. You only need to set a side a couple of hours to have a look around. it's a brilliant temple to look at and take photos of.
