Came here at the end of our first day, around 6pm less busy, great light to see the ruined temple and just in time to take part in "monk chat" which was very interesting and saw the chanting going on in the main temple with a small congregation. Well worth a visit and the small entrance fee (although apparently this... More

This is a worthwhile visit. The temple building has been restored to a shining luster, and it is especially beautiful at night with the lights on. It is a rather large temple, and very ornate. Inside the city walls this is probably the most refined and highly polished temple. The chedi outside is original and was damaged by an earth... More

I visited this location mostly to participate in a monk chat. You can go to this temple during the day and talk with novice monks. It's a great way to explore Buddhism or get simple questions answered.

Wat Chedi Luang had always a 'magical' power of attraction to me. I visite it for the first time almost 30 years ago when the Chedi was not secured yet. Since then merely every year and if it is just for a couple of minutes. It must be magic but find out by yourself!

The temples are beautiful the best time to go is in the morning when it's cool. We chatted to some of the monks who carry out 'monk chats' to the right of the temple as you look at it under yellow umbrellas. He advised us on everything about his culture. He mentioned that to go to one of the supassana... More

Just Imagine if the Chedi was not broken, it would be very huge and can spot from another city. They said it was build to be a landmark of Chiangmai once you travel from another city centuries ago. Now we can only see a quarter of it, but can appreciate the hard work of those generation.

Wat Chedi Luang features an incredible program for both tourists and monks called "monk chats." The university sponsors the monk chat program as an outlet to learn English while tourists get the opportunity to ask monks about anything regarding bhuddism, being a monk, and more. My fiance and I attended a monk chat and it was an absolutely incredible experience.... More
