The sanctuary/temple which houses a large golden image of Buddha was beautiful and and felt very peaceful, I'm sure the result of years or decades of prayer/meditation being conducted therein. The real gem of this place is the ruins of the old temple, which you could almost miss if you don't walk around behind the current structure. It is a... More

Perfectly conserved Buddhist structure in Chiang Mai. A little hidden from Ratchadamoen street, but easy to find. TIP FOR GIRLS: Nearby there a lot of small shops of very interesting clothing, don't miss it!

This is a very nice temple located right in the middle of the old city. Enjoy a relaxing stroll around the grounds and explore the many smaller temples and buildings. It does get quite crowded during the day so go early if possible. As with all temples in Thailand it is required to dress appropriately.

A beautiful, serene Wat that is a must see. Come early and you will have the place almost to yourself. Afterwards you can go to "Monk Chat" and sit and speak with a Monk in an area adjacent to the Wat. Wonderful experience!

Chedi Luang Temple (Royal Pagoda temple) is an ancient temple, located right in the center of old town. Suggest to take a walk within old town so beside this temple, you can also visit many others temples, ie. Wat Pra Singh and many other small temples on the way. This temple aged several centuries. Tourist should remember to take of... More

This is a fantastic temple to visit while in Chiang Mai. The old temple furthest from the street doesn't take long to walk around to see. It's gorgeous and very old, but unfortunately not open to the public. The newer temple, close to the main street is active and open to the public so I really enjoyed spending some time... More

This was my favorite sight in Chiang Mai. The historical temple is grand and the architecture is incredible. This is in the heart of the city and can tend to get hot during the day. I loved the historical and religious significance and a beautiful sight.
