I was walking around Chiang Mai and found this nice temple. It was free to get in and very well kept. The monks seemed nice and it was a good place to have a rest and take some photos.

Within the old town and in walking distance from many other temples this one was stunning. The temples and wats are beautifully decorated. The roof of the temple is intricately carved. There is a lot of gold which shines brightly in the sun. There are monks going about their daily rituals and you can interact with them if asked politely.... More

Brush up on do's and don'ts before visiting Wats for courtesy. This place is massive! What I did like was the cleanliness and majestic feel. What I didn't like was the exploited children on the steps. Please be polite to these children but don't perpetuate working primary school age children. They should be getting an education so they know how... More

We were in chiang mai and wanted a half day visit to a nice temple in town, a short tuktuk drive away. This temple's compound is great, has a few beautiful and impressive temples in it, andc had a nice small cafeteria in the shade, To summarize it’s a great place to visit, has a variety of nice restaurants nearby...

The grounds are surprisingly large and peaceful. Only the main temple, Wihan Luang, has a 20 baht 'foreigner fee'. The murals and interior of Wihan Lain Kham are intricate and well preserved. Wat Phra Singh is a short walk just west of Wat Chedi Luang Worawihan and the more interesting of the two.

This place is full of the culture of the northern lanna in Chiangmai. Inside the temple, it is so beautiful

Long exhausting climb up especially if you have kids. You will need to carry little ones up. Apparently there was a cable car BUT i did not see it.
