A good, typical Thai temple
Nov 2019
A typical Thai temple, easily found near the centre of Chiang Rai and the night market.

It can't compare to many more famous temples but worth 5 or 10 minutes to view if you are nearby, which you probably are.

Good pictures and statues inside,and the usual nagas and other creatures guarding the outside.

It's my 2nd favourite temple in Chiang Rai. It's only about 5 minutes walk from the main bus station. It's pretty cool

It's my 2nd favourite temple in Chiang Rai. It's only about 5 minutes walk from the main bus station. It's pretty cool imo but I'm no temple expert ;-) It's free to wander around

Temple by the town

This is a simple temple you can walk to near the night market. It is colorful and nice. Nothing much compared to the other famous temple.

I visited this lovely monastery in a hot sunny afternoon. Only I and my mother were there. Greeted by a small dog. So peaceful and enchanting.

Great Temple
Mar 2019 • Solo
This is a great temple with a big golden Buddha. I’ve visited numerous temples whilst in Thailand and there are only a few which stand out. This is one of them.

A grand temple truly reflective of Buddhist culture, the building boasts many interesting paintings and the pillars are nicely decorated.

The ceiling is also impressive.

Good for a half hour walk-around.

Amazing huge Buddha
Jan 2019 • Couples
An amazing huge Buddha inside the hall of the temple. Easy to access the temple as it is located in the city center.

Big Buddha / serene city temple
Dec 2018 • Couples
Serene temple juxtaposed by the noisy main bar street in Chiang Mai - the grounds are tranquil and the temple itself is home to one of the biggest golden Buddhas I've seen.

Large Golden Buddha
Oct 2018 • Solo
Located in the city center on the same street as the lady bars. One of the least visited temple in Chiang Rai. It also has a namesake temple in Chiang Mai, but they are quite different. While Wat Jed Yod in Chiang Mai has a brick chedi with beautiful stucco decorations, here the chedi has no stucco, is painted un white and complete. The veranda is richly decorated with floral themes and ceiling the astrological fresco. The main building which houses a large golden sitting Buddha with a very friendly expression surrounded by colorful murals. Behind the main building stands the white chedi with seven golden arrows - Jed Yod means seven peaks in Thai.
