Nice temple to visit, but for tourists they make you pay which seems a bit ridiculous. So many other temples in town that are free. Great for religious festivals as a lot of activity goes on at this temple.

Of all the ways in the old city, this remains my favorite. Serene, beautiful, quiet and lots of monks walking about.

Nice Wat, several buildings yet not too big. A good place to wonder around and enjoy the beautiful Wat and surrounding buildings in one or one and a half hour

I know that may seem simplistic. But after one week of temples, all tend to look alike, and this is no different. To see, since it's in the city center and like everyone else wat you do not pay the entrance, but this will definitely not stay in your memories of Chiang mai.

Very beautiful temple with old lanna architectures. We went there the first time, but we were very impressed. Wonderful atmosphere and good feeling - you can feel a personal wellbeing. If you visit Chiang Mai - you must see - you must go there!

Very beautiful temple and many different position of Buddha statues to see and learn. Big area to walk around but could be a bit crowded as its a tourist spot!
