I think you could visit a temple every day for a year in Chiang Mai and not see them all and not find something new or different at each one. Wat Jed Yod is no exception. The grounds are especially beautiful and peaceful you have a sense of going deeper and deeper into a pastoral setting despite being in the... More

In Thailand there are special temples that honor the animal of a birth year. This is the temple which represents the Year of the Snake. Beautiful snake sculptures are throughout the grounds which are abundantly beautiful. The Wat and stupas are wonderful as well.

A walk around the grounds creates a feeling of inner peace - very calming. The mix of nature with the ruins makes this well worth a stop even though it is not near the old city - closer to the trendy Nimmanhaeman area but along the highway. For those who enjoy old architecture, ruins and history this is worth a... More

...most people wouldn't expect such an extended temple area. Wat Jed Yod contains a large number of stupas and is in my eyes one of the most interesting temples in Chiang Mai. The buildings are old and they are situated along a historic route to Birma - most structures are in ruins but this makes the place more authentic than... More

My wife and I live near here and walk through it often. This temple complex incorporates a lot of nature into the grounds, with trees and other features throughout. The temples are immense and grand and beautiful within.

Very nice temple with all of architecture to admire. Keep adequate time in hand and don't make a tight programme if you want to admire past and present.

Wat Jed Yod seems to suddenly appear when you walk through the path to the Chedi. The main structure us very old dating back hundreds of years. One is immediately struck by how old it appears and getting closer you can see that some of the figures around the base are broken. As with all temples in Thailand, shoes must... More

here is an oases for the erratic mind of travelers, a place where wish can be posted and taken in account by the spirit of time and space, so tolerant that you don't get upset for the proximity of the superhighway

The Jed Yod Temple probably has more meaningful to Thais and Buddhists travelers. For other travelers, this temple gives a different structure of the Chedi that is a replica of the Chedi where Buddha was born. The base of the Chedi is a rectangular shape base with 7 spires on the top. The Chedi is also house a main Buddha... More
