At the facade upon the entrance is a rather ordinary temple building, the visitor needs to go to the back to sight the monumental ancient temple. the staircase to go up the temple is closed due to various reason. Some reconstructing work is going on but it doesnt affect the grandeur of the place.

Cheap, centrally located, dramatic, photogenic. You can get temple fatigue here in SE Asia, but it would be a waste to visit Chiang Mai and not go here.

A must see in Chaing Mai. There are a variety at temples, one only allows men to enter. The 600 year old original temple is simply stunning. Fun that they have the year you were born (rat, monkey, pig, etc) and you can make a donation here. Monk chat looks very popular (you can speak with Thai monks) we didn't... More

Was interesting to look around the temples at Wat Chedi Luang, but it felt run down and was disappointing to see the state of the temple now, as to how it was in it's prime time. Worth a visit, but you could not spend more than half an hour here.

Some kind of convention was going on so the entire Chedi was obstructed from view. Still paid to get in.

Very relaxed and friendly series of temples, with robes provided should you not be dressed appropriately. Just 40baht for entry. Worth a stop on your stroll around town.

The building is nice to see, just not really worth the money! You pay 40 baht to get in (I know it's nothing) but once you get in there isn't such a cosy atmosphere to it...not really something I thought wow this was good to see
