3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

After seeing so many temples in Chiang Mai, this one held no special distinction. They advertise massage at the entrance. It is located across the street from the Tha Phae gate outside the old city wall area. The staff is friendly and there is a museum.

Just came back from message where we had a lovely feet massage. Staff is very friendly. Although The place is close by The road, it's a little bit hidden behind The temple you can enjoy The view Of The Wat :)

Worth a look if passing by. Museum on ground floor of main temple building upstairs richly painted temple interesting ceilings. Bizarre mix of painted animals around the grounds a little like a Noah's arc. Massage in the grounds one of the cheapest in central Chaing Mai. Not a must do but do it if passing and interested in Thai Arcetecture.

This is a temple you would only go and see if you happened to be in the area. It is nothing special really. It does have a neat Ganesh statue in the front and a nice stupa in the rear. The main temple was closed so we could not get inside it.

The temple is amazing, peaceful grounds and you can see devotees visiting the temple. What's very cool about the temple is that there's a massage parlour in the temple grounds. In the evenings, you can see the young monks cleaning the grounds. Highly recommended as the massage services are the cheapest you can find in the city, and the masseurs... More

One of the great things about Chiangmai is the number of temples that are within the old city. They vary in size and importance. Wat Mahawan lies behind a white wall along Tapae Road. Take the time and have a look. There are number of buildings within the temple grounds, including a small wooden chapel, the main sala and up... More

I think it was 180 baht for the one hour full body thai massage and it was the best massage i have ever had, no oils used, my sister opted for the massage native to that area in which they use a wooden stick and hammer (cant remember the name) to unblock the chakras and she really enjoyed it, left...

The temple itself is very beautiful. Inside, there's a massage area and it's only 140.- for 1 hour foot/thai massage. The atmosphere is relaxing. I had foot massage and it was my last day in Chiangmai so I wish I could have found this place earlier. It opens from 10am to 8pm daily. They sell local made tiger balm and... More
