    The place atop a mountain is a view to be believed from down. I being sr citizen did not climb the 300 steps. The base area is well landscaped and has historical info displayed.

    The temple is located in the western part of the old city, was built in the last part of the 14th century and and then much renovated in the 19thcentury. It is one of the most popular temples in the old city and the big golden pagoda is perhaps the main attraction. It is well worth a visit.

    The entire place is quiet, serene, dotted with Buddhist statues, old structures, intricate carvings, Naga-flanked stairways, beautiful views of the city and very few (if any) tourists. It is said it was built in the 14th century and is one of the Chiang Mai places not to be missed.

    Good peace of mind, if you need some place calm to set your mind to peace and get some rest please visit this temple a bit far away from the crowing centre. Also if you get to assist in the monk prayers please do so.

    Good fresh air in the morning.

    The monastery is in the midst of trees giving it a peaceful and tranquil feel. The trip is made in the evening this the air is cool. It leads to an underground tunnel where the temple is. It has a mysterious feel to it.

    Originally built at the beginning of the 16th century, renovated from 2008 to 2016 and also known as the Silver Temple, Wat Sri Suphan is located just south of the old city and it is unique in its appearance and the fact that is all clad in silver. A beautiful statue of Ganesha (son of Shiva and Parvati) is placed in the front of the temple, confirms strong Hindu influences and the detailed silversmith work on every part of the temple is simply exquisite and amazing.

    Although located in a quite busy part of the city, the temple is quiet and interesting. The white chedis next to the golden pagoda contain the ashes of various members of the royal family. The temple is built on the site of a 14th century royal garden and is well worth a visit...

    We visited this place during our walking tour of the old city and is located in the centre of the old city. It’s the site where ovens were placed to cast Buddha images for Wat Chedi Luang, which is nearby. The viharn is beautiful. Opposite the entrance is a large golden sitting Buddha, the Wat Phan Tao’s principal Buddha image. There is also a large white chedi. We were there in the evening and it was shutting down for the day then.

    Came across this temple earlier in the day, and the old stupa caught our eyes. Made the visit at night and it was truly worth the visit, although it appears people usually come here to pray during the day. But then again, it was peaceful visit for us. The temple was beautifully lit at night - such as nice sight for photo like most temples in old town area. There's also some great street food within walking distance - just by the entrance to Chang Phuak Gate. Great location to stop by before dinner around there. Overall, a beautiful graceful temple to stop by when in Chiang Mai.

    This is the Eastern gate of the walled city and most known among the four gates.

    If you go into the walled city from here, it will lead you to the start of the Sunday night bazaar. Good place to start your visit as it leads to the major temples and attractions.

    The gate will lead to the Eastern side or the Ping River and the night market.

    Some sort of modern temple (?) that sort of looks like a shop. "Free of charge!" the signs enthusiastically tell us.

    Uhm okay, sure, been here, done this, worth the detour. :D

    Small village build and decor with local materials that make the tourist WOW!!! but for Thai people can’t make them feel like that.

    Good for the people who like to take a photo. Different decor zone like old home decor, coffee shop or agricultural area. Middle of the area have a big space that is a nice place to take a photo.

    One of recommended place for tourism.

    We visited at about 10 in the morning when the temple, which is at the heart of this ancient town, was pretty much deserted. We were able to wander at our own pace, undisturbed around the ruins. The temple itself is being restored, and murals of everyday village life being painted on the walls, were quite absorbing. I much preferred this place to the more frequented temples we saw.

    Located on the Chiang Mai to Lamphun highway, this old temple is a must visit, take a walk about the grounds and admire the building, one of the oldest in Chiang Mai and a must visit during your stay
