Thailand's Wat Rong Khun?

I would like to blog about the Temple in the above story. Apparently it houses murals of popular occidental pop culture icons such as Superman along with traditional Buddhist and Hindu entities. Does anyone know which traditional the temple is affiliated with? Is it a part of the Dhammakaya Movement? Thanks in advanced.

I don't know, but it sure is beautiful.
