ChiangMan Temple is one of the famous temple in Chiangmai and the name ChiangMan is synonym as Long Live. So everyone who visit this temple will get long live and happy to stay as long time, once you visit ChiangMai this is one of many temple that you must visit before you leave.

Nice peaceful temple, calm quiet and away from the crowds and the loud Chinese tour groups. Lovely to visit the oldest temple in a city in which with so many, it's hard to know what's worth visiting

A great and very old temple. Both the large and the small temple looks very nice. And the cheddi with carved elephant heads all around is also great. One of Chiang Mais better temples.

This is one of the most photogenic temples in Chiang Mai. Well worth a visit, it is in the top ten in the city. The wiharn is nice and the stupa is interesting and the Lanna style.

Fascinating temple--oldest in Chiang Mai and well worth visiting. Be sure to see the king's stupa structure in the back, which is lovely.

Wat Chiang Man is the first Temple in Chiangmai, located at the old city wall that the King Mungrai's palace when he built the city. It's the spiritul center of the Chiangmai people and if you want to see the old Lanna Architectures or Chiangmai cultures look like, It's a must see

Quite far from other temples in the city centre but it is definitely worth visiting. The elephant shrine is historic. Worshippers pay tribute with sugar cane pieces and bottled water. Sit on a bench and relax. It is why you are in Chiangmai.

Visited this temple late in the day. Around 5pm isnt such a bad time to visit this temple on a Saturday as there was not many tourists around. Throughout the property, we saw one monk inside the biggest temple reading and praying from his book. Only two temples were open for viewing yet we enjoyed the serene environment. The place... More

This was not highly publicised as a temple to go and visit bit it is the oldest of a ll temples in Chiang Mai. The supta at the rear is covered by elephant heads and is a real spectical if you have time drop in here.

Wat Chiang Man is undergoing some major renovation work at the time of visit early July 2015. Still worth a visit to see the first temple in Chiang Mai. I am particularly fascinated by the golden stupa located at the back compound. The elephant carvings are very interesting.
