Our tour group spent part of a morning exploring and experiencing some of which this unique institution has to offer. Walking the grounds and listening to the chanting of the monks is certainly a grand opportunity to enjoy Thai culture and Buddhist teachings. They offer retreats for those who are interested in gaining more experience and knowledge.

Just completed the 1-day mediation with Phra KK. It was such a wonderful experience. He is super easy to understand, kind and a great teacher. He teaches Buddhist principals, mediation techniques and everything in between. He answers all questions on being a monk. I would receive omens it to anyone, such a great day!

I actually went on the one day retreat rather than the monk talk. The monk who taught the one day retreat speaks very good English and is so humorous. He was able to deliver serious topics like Buddhist philosophy and Buddhism history in a way that’s entertaining but also educational. I actually went on a 3-day retreat in Taiwan before but still found this one helpful because it’s a very comprehensive review of the main meditation techniques and Buddhist teachings.

We didn't know what more to do in Chiang Mai and found out about this option. The monk is really nice and smart and teaches you basics about buddhism and the importance of meditation. We did it on Friday, January 3 and it was a great start of the new year. The course itself was free, but we all donated to the orphanage the temple works with. I myslef have anxiety and he talked about it so I'll try meditating every day. That's my new years resolution haha. Definitely a great experience.
