A bit off-track, but surely worth a visit

Certainly worth seeing if you have enough time & are not yet templed out. Unique structures different than all the others in CM.

Nice and quiet temple with less tourist. For my one hour visit saw less than 5 tourist during peak season of February. But hard to find transport after visit. There is no Taxi, Song Tiao and Tuk Tuk nearby. I walk 15 minute to Maya Shopping Center in order to get a Song Tiao back to my Hotel in Old... More

What a wonderful sensation a visit (or repeat visit) to Wat Jed Yod afford! It is akin to walking back in time several centuries, and beholding the exquisitely sculpted Buddhas (especially those that are still intact) is an experience not to be missed by those seeking remnants of traditional civilisation! It is all located within a small historical park which... More

Old style temple but always nice to go for a quick meditation. I experience this place while visiting a friend living in Chiang 5 years ago. Since that time, I drop by when I am visiting my friend

Head out of Chiang Mai a short distance & close to the Super Highway you'll find this beautiful old Wat. Some in teresting sights here & the small temple is really lovely. You can wind a couple of hours away easily here in this tranquil setting.

My local temple, I go here 2-3 times a week to make merit. It is a extremely important temple and has been getting a labour intensive and loving restoration. Beautiful figures adorn the walls of the main shrine, and the temples themselves are exquisite. Despite being so close to Superhighway, it is very quiet and you can relax under the... More

This temple is a fantastic tour through various stupas. The mahachedi (main stupa), is fabulous. It is totally unique in Thailand and this temple should be on everybody's must see list for Chiang Mai.

Wat Jet Yod is a great temple to visit, especially as it contains both ancient and modern elements with lots of beauty and interest. Modern temple buildings, restored murals, golden Buddha statues, as well as ruins, bodhi trees, and more. I happily explored this temple as well as rested there, taking in the marvels, serenity, butterflies, and scent of plumeria... More
