One of the most beautiful temples of Chiang Mai, in the city center. Chiang Mai has a lot of temples but this one really deserve a visit

This was an amazing place to walk and see. The temple ruins look spectacular and at night it looks even better.

Beautuful temples and whole complex. Because it's an open area, no shade, it's really hot in the middle of the sunny day. You need to cover your knees and your shoulders which makes it even hotter. Still worth going :)

My favorite temple within the Old City. If you have to choose one temple to visit, this should be the one.

The ruins are huge and can stun at first sight,even with the reconatructed pieces. A must see in Chiang Rai, shame that they put a price tag on it now.

We did our own walking tour of this beautiful monument and wish we had a guide to tell us of its history. A passerby told us when he was young - 18 years ago - him and his mom climbed the stairs into the actual temple. The only original elephant statue still stands on its own after an earthquake (??)...

Really incredible experience to see part of Thai culture, this temple is revered as it holds the pillar to Chiang Mai-which women aren't allowed inside that one particular spot. There are sarongs available, dress code strictly enforced.

We were impressed by the old temple with the snake and elephant sculptures in front, because it looked very natural. We liked the fact that it was not completely renovated. We also went into the Museum, which was also interesting. But the Best part was the monk chat! We talked with max for over two hours and could have easily... More
