Wat Chedi is my favourite Thai Temple, there are many ways for getting involved and supporting the spiritual life here. There is a university who run a programme where you can meet and talk with monks 'Monk Chat', you learn about Buddhism and the Monks get to improve their English - though be aware that some charismatic christians were there...

If you are a history lover, then visit this place..! this is the most respectable buddhist temple in the chiang mai old city. So there are some restrictions regarding the behaviour and the dress. But there are some alternations as well.

Wat Chedi Luang is a place of rare beauty. Except for the temple itself a visitor may stare for several minutes the awesome snake statues at its entrances, the elephant statues getting out from the corner of the surrounding outside walls ...It also offers the chance to explore the surroundings because there are smaller temples and houses were many monks...

Huge and Humongous old Wat, absolutely blissful Wat , neat and we'll maintained complex. We went there on 21.05.15 , In Chiang Mai we can see Wats everywhere, the most important is this Wat along with the 2 Wats on top of the mountain. When we sit in silence after doing all the formalities, we can feel the positive vibrations... More

Ancient structure is a must-visit in Chiangmai. While you will not be able to walk up the structure, from below it is already quite majestic.

This is a really cool temple in the middle of the city. If you stay in the city interior you could easily walk here or just hop on a taxi and come down. Its free to get in and its a nice and relaxing place where you get to see a Buddhist temple and some other smaller temples.

We did a private tour since my activity is limited. The hotel helped arrange it and it was the best for us. Our guide was friendly, spoke English and was able to tailor the time to our prefernces

I really was quite blown away by this temple it is right in the centre of the old city. I'm not sure the exact age but it looks really old. Quite different to most temples I have seen. It reminded me of Cham temples in Vietnam. Two thumbs up!
