This is an unusual Buddha as it is green in colour. It is well kept especially as it is so popular. Kneeling with the monks saying their prayers was a nice touch.

Simply amazing. It is definitely well worth seeing.Many temples are quite huge and elaborate.The cleanliness of the temples is quite astounding. They are kept very clean considering how many tourists pass through them everyday.It's well worth the time to explore these temples.

In the wat grounds you can get leg or thai massage. The people there are very experienced, and well worth a trip. Much better than any of the massage shops we tried.

I came across this temple while wondering the old part of Chiang Mai. It is a small but nice temple with a nice statue of Buddha inside. Also had a small eatery at the front on a Sunday night.

Small temple. Well kept temple grounds with lots of cute art. They advertise that you can chat with a monk on Saturdays, but sent me to Wat Chedi Luang for that. All in all a little too touristy for my taste.

Whole of Chaing Mai is dotted with such temples made of excellent architecture. People seem to have poured money to maintain them.
