Ever wonder about the history of old Siam? This is a great place to go to learn about an ancient kingdom of Siam. It is also very beautiful, great for photos.

It is just 10 minutes to old city. It is one of the old style temple. Anyone who love historical places must visit this one of the good sample.

Yeah! If you're Buddhist, you know how significant that is! Plus, it contains a (poorly copied) replica of the Mahabodhi temple in Bodh Gaya. And the whole temple complex is pretty. A nice mix of ruins and living temple space.

Stunning royal temple in Chiang Mai, nearly a millennium old so there are ruins as well as a full temple in the centre of the complex. Great place to get blessed or see some authentic Thai traditions

Wat chet yod is a fifteenth century wat just outside the Chiangmai old city. It is not as well know as other wats in Chiangmai but is well worth a visit. It quiet and lots of land. Great for a wander around. Slowly on a hot day. When visiting it is well worth joining a group or getting an individual... More

Wat Jed Yod is one of the fabulous temples in Chiang Mai City. And this place is very peaceful place. Even this temple is closed to the main road. Recommended.

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
