    We hiked up the Monk’s Trail to this temple and it was absolutely stunning. We didn’t even bother going to the more famous Wat Phra That Doi Suthep. It was very peaceful out there and you could easily spend half a day there just enjoying peacefulness and the nature surrounding the temple. Or if you feel up to it, the hiking trail continues all the way to Doi Suthep temple.

    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 Silver Sanctuary was built and decorated by silver craftsmen of Wua Lai Community .The sanctuary is decorated with the pure silver on the most important and parts. Aluminium was used for the decoration of the rest of the sanctuary areas, instead of using pure silver for the whole building. Its a great place to visit and very impressive both inside and out. a few silversmith shops surround the perimeter selling various items.

    There are many little chedis here and some of them contain the ashes of the former royal family of Chiang Mai. The whole compound is peaceful and pleasant to walk around. There are lots of good spots to take beautiful pictures.

    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.

    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

    Wat Chet Lin (or Wat Jet Lin) is a Buddhist temple in Chiang Mai. It is located in Prapokkloa Road, inside the Chiang Mai Old City Walls. It is only 350 meters away from the Famous Wat Chedi Luang.
    It's an Airy, Tranquil temple with a Beautiful pond. It's like a hidden Gem. It's open from very early in the Morning (4 a.m.) and the Visiting is Free. If you go there in the morning you can park your motorbike in the temple's yard.

    We reached here, as part of a taxi day tour, to the Wat Doi Suthep and other temples on the west side of the old City. This wat is located at the foot of Doi Suthep mountain towards the airport. It is a Buddhist centre offering meditation retreat.

    Admission was free. There is an old stupa, clusters of buildings with individual cells for meditators, bungalows, kitchen and dining hall as well as some other buildings. It was peaceful inside the compound. We spent about 30 minutes here to look around and capture some pictures. Since the temple is a bit out of the way, it can be difficult to find a ride for the return trip, so it would be advisable to book a round trip and have the driver wait. We were there at noon and it was quite hot, and best to carry a hat, sunblock and water with you.

    Be sure to visit this one. The interior is splendid and very popular with local Thais. The gold leaf encrusted sacred statues alone are wonderous.
