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

This seems to be a site with works in progress. The main temple is lovely though small and the reliefs in varying states of disrepair. Away from the main old city hub so it's quiet and I initially drove past it, requiring a fair amount of effort to get back on Chiang Mai's one-way road system.

This was the second time that l have visited Jed Yod Temple, it is so easy to find, it is situated on the super highway not far from The Maya. There is parking on site, the monks here are very friendly, the site is undergoing restoration, a new perimeter wall has just been completed, there are also toilet facilities

The quietness of this temple is amazing. The old architecture that has survived so many centuries is not to be missed. Still in use by locals everyday.

Very old temple build in the 15th century. Wat Jed Yod has a unique type of Chedi (Pagoda) which really must be seen.

I loved going to this quiet temple. It is under renovation, but still lots to see. We bought some birds to whisper our hopes and wishes to and released them.
