Wat Chedi Luang Varavihara is located in the centre of the walled City. The temple's was constructed in the 14th century. King Saen Muang Ma planned to bury his father's ashes there. After 10 years they left it unfinished. The Kings widow later continued it after his death but did not complete it. In the mid 15th century King Tilokaraj finished it. It stands just under 270ft high and the base is just over 177ft long. In 1545, the top 100ft collapsed after a large earthquake. In the 1990s it was reconstructed by UNESCO and the Japanese government. I believe it cost 80baht (about $3.40CAD) per adult. You also must be dressed respectfully. Shoulders and knees must be covered at all time. We arrived at 5:15pm and it closed at 6pm. We felt rushed with only 45mins. But I don't think you would need more than an hour maybe an hour and 15mins. The grounds are very large and there is a lots to see. It was not busy.

This was built in 1441 and a 16th century earthquake reduced the 295ft chedi to 140ft. The triple-roofed wihan (a shrine hall that contains the principal Buddha images) is a must to see inside as it is beautiful.

After seeing many temples, this one was rather endearing, maybe like a kids blankie. Old damaged by earthquake , there is still enough left to make the view worth taking.

One of the must sees in Chiang Mai. There is a wat almost in every corner in Chiang Mai and I think it is really worth to wonder around all of them. Wat Chedi is a bit special as it has many smaller buildings to see, wonder around the place and read some interesting story or a hint about the place and the culture. Unfortunately the monk-discussion was closed when we were there and there weren't many tourist around, still, it is really great experience!

Hello. I visited the temple in March. It was as hot as fire. But we enjoyed the visit. 1/2 way through the visit we went to the coffee shop in the back in the left corner. It was a perfect break from the heat. Behind the coffee shop there is a pool with a fountain and a really nice strangler fig tree. The ruins on site are very interesting and there is a giant honey comb in one of the top arches. Overall I really enjoyed it.
