An ancient Wat

A large and interesting wat to visit. The central structure dates back far beyond the many other buildings in the city.

We wandered in after walking through Chiang Mai and were amazed at the grounds. Highly recommend going in - we missed out on Monk Chat though. Apparently it's really interesting.
