On the way to Wat Chedi Luang we stopped here, like many others it’s small complex of temples and tourist hunting pictures. Many street sellers inside selling decorations or souvenirs. Unfortunately big crowds and many souvenirs sellers

Located off Walking Street just inside the walled city this beautiful pagoda / temple appears. It is free to wander around but you are limited to what you can explore due some renovations. The many bells are interesting as is the small Buddha by the...More

this was one of the first temples I stumbled upon in Chiang Mai and it had a bit of a market inside. When you are first exploring the Temples or Wat's you are mesmerized by all of the intricate carvings and appreciation for their religion....More
