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.

Hired a tuktuk driver for the day who took us around the old city and to several of its temples. He highly recommended this place. He kept referring to it as the "Indian Temple". Wat Jed Yod is indeed interesting. It looks so different from the rest of Chiangmai's temples. It's like an ancient ruin. It has a rectangular chedi... More

There seems to be some minor confusion as to the spelling of the name of this temple which according to the big sign on the highway upon arrival at the temple and just before turning left into the entrance says "Wat Ched Yod", not Chet Yot or Jed Yod. The temple wasn't crowded at all unlike some of the ones... More

A very old temple set in pleasant grounds just off the start of the super highway not far from the Rim Kam Junction or the new MAYA Shopping Centre. 15 minute walk from MAYA. If you like temples and are interested in ancient original walls/ruins then this temple is well worth a visit.

Wat Jed Yod official name is Wat Photharam Maha Wihan. It is a centre of pilgrimage for those born in the year of the Snake. King Tilokarat commissioned the construction of the temple in 1455 CE after he had sent monks to Bagan in Burma to study the design of the Mahabodhi temple there, itself a copy of the Mahabodhi...
