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

It's not located on the main street but it's not too hard to find. The best point was the Buddha light. How cool is that !

This small temple was such a nice respite from the insanity of huge crowds at many others. There were only a few people here and most were locals worshiping. Since there were few tourists, I took up my guide's offer to participate in a specific...More

We saw a lot of temples in this area, but this one was a nice small one to see. I suggest doing this temple along with others to get a comparison of big to small.

Beautiful temple, not the grandest, but small and quiet. And no massage or food and drink stalls at the entry (which I prefer - I can get those things elsewhere). Plenty of shade and respite from the pulse of the old city. It was nice...More

it is a small temple with not too much of a design but very peaceful and calm inside. a well maintained garden surrounds the temple. you will find monks mediating inside.

Charming, cozy temple. Late afternoon (approx. 4pm) chatted with one of the monks and followed him and other monks into the shrine for a moving chant. Contemporary illumination of the Buddha statues inside the shrine. Small, neighborhood temple, but welcoming and powerful.
