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

In the city of Chiangmai, there is a old or ancient stupa in the middle of the temple. Some parts of the old stupa have given way from an earthquake. The old stupa id off limit to tourists. Just like a mini pyramid. There are still some stone elephant statues on the stupa, restored. Around the stupa, you can find... More

This tempel wasn't exactly what I expected: I though there would only be the ruin (and for what I think that would've been enough). But besides the old temple there's also the new one. The old Wat Chedi Luang isn't comparable though. Really worth the visit.

I really didn't expect the scale of this temple, it was awe inspiring. A lot of the temples are in built up areas but this one is in a serene area of other shrines and gardens.
