Worth the heat

I was impressed with how clean and well kept. The age of this temple is truly amazing. Worth the trip and walking in the hot sun.

We were there without a tour guide so we were left wondering what the place was about. I guess it was a ruin of an old temple which should once be an important worship place. There was some restoration work in progress. A place to visit if you like history and culture.

There are so many glorious temples in Chiang Mai and all within walking distance, but this is rather special. There's much to admire and appreciate about its historical significance, and there's a meditative feel about this temple. Enjoy your quiet walk there.

Wat Chedi Luang leaves you speechless with the sheer size and awe of the ruined chedi (stupa). It's one of those things that you sit and look at and wonder 'how the heck did they build that so long ago?' - wonderful monument. One of the most awe inspiring temples in Thailand.

Definitely worth a visit but try early morning or evening to avoid the crowds. The history & architecture is amazing & 30-40 mins is enough here unless you just want to sit & absorb this wonderful Wat.
