Cute temple

Free to walk in and yes, its another temple. Not large, yet quaint and always worthy of a look as you are passing by in the old town of Chiang Mai.

Close to Thapae Gate and free to visit
May 2019 • Solo
Wat Dokkham is another lesser-known temple I visited because the popular temples are now charging foreigners to enter, - and I thought I would visit a few of the lesser well known ones and see if they're worth a visit instead.

Wat Dokkham is situated on the moat road, close to Thapae Gate; easy to check on the map.

There is the main temple with fine pictures on the walls and plenty of artifacts. There is a smaller building outside with Buddha statue and others inside. Also, a fine small stupa in the courtyard.

Wat Dokkham is a good average Thai temple to visit. Note that when I visited there were three dogs in the courtyard that barked a lot and appeared menacing. I stood still for a while, let them sniff me, and after that they lost interest.

Good advice at any time, but of course some bigger dogs may react differently.

Well maintained, little Temple
Jul 2018 • Solo
This is a small temple near Ta Pae Gate. You will pass it when walking from the gate to Somphet Market. I is located on the same side of the road.

Expect no sensational or rare things to discover here. It is an average Thai Buddhist temple with beautiful wall paintings inside the viharn (main building). The chedi behind it is very shiny and seems to glow during sunset. The whole place looks well maintained.

There is a second, much smaller building that houses another Buddha image.

All in all it is worth a short visit if you happen to be in the vicinity.

Worth a look if passing by

This temple is near to Tha Prae Gate and worth a brief visit. It is a small temple with a pagoda and shrine adjacent in the grounds. Very decorative inside. There are more interesting temples in the old town.

Nothing remarkable
Jun 2016 • Solo
Usually in any temple one can find some original or interesting features in the buildings or in the images but there was nothing much to see here which was particularly memorable. In addition the main hall was closed with only the smaller building open for worship. At least the temple was well patronised by local office workers during a lunchtime visit.

Needs a little work

One of many temples in the old city of Chiang Mai. This one is just down the moat to the right after passing through Thae Pai Gate. Unlike many of the others, this one needs some work and upkeep. It just seems a bit run down. Even though, it is still beautiful and in a prime area of the old city.
