Being from US I've never stood in presence of something so old. Just spectacular. I'm a hobbyist photographer and probably took 400 shots. Hot and humid. Take a towel. (really a necessary accessory in Thailand) Loved this sight. Must see. Spend time. Read up before you go.

Located at the old Chiangmai town, it is one of the good temples. Although I am a not a fan of temples, the architecture of the temple and the structures around there are nice.

I uploaded a single, most important attraction in the temple. This is a piece of the old culture in Thailand, old architecture, though it is off limit you can clearly see the beauty of the ancient Siam kingdom. Beautiful. For Buddhist, there are many monk statues to pray and get blessing. Recommended

Walked thru old city and Sunday walking markets with children. They loved visiting Wat Chedi Luang the best as saw 'grass and trees growing on old temple'. Would be nice if signs or pamphlets available to describe what we were seeing. The markets are huge need at least 2hrs to see them all, cheap competitive prices.

The only temple we chose to visit as we are looking for some places which are not crowded. Surprisingly this visit turned out to be a pleasant one. We had our own sweet time to look around and take pictures. The only thing you have to take note is ladies must wear pants or dress that cover more than knee.... More

One of my favorite temples in chiang mai! Very calm and so much to see. Huge golden Buddhas, monks praying, old ruins... it's got a bit of everything.
