    Visited this place during April 24, it is a must visit place in Chiang Mai. Architecture of the temple makes it unique. Mindset of people or monks in and around are very nice.

    Originally intended as a mere rest stop for weary travelers on their pilgrimage, the temple has since evolved into a sanctuary of spiritual solace and reflection. Nestled amidst lush forest surroundings, the grounds exude a sense of serenity and tranquility—an oasis of calm amidst the hustle and bustle of modern life.

    This temple is located 15 km from Chiangmai city center. It can be reached by car or motorbike. It has breathtaking view as it is located in the hill. The interesting things are the golden pagoda and the buddha image (Luang Phor Tun Jai). Furthermore, visitor can see the buddha in three postures (standing, reclining and sitting).

    Thailand has so many great temples, this one is very unique and probably one of the most beautiful ones. It is a little hidden in Chiang Mai , so ask your way around or get a taxi it tuk-tuk . This is a fantastic artist piece of work with so much to discover in such a small temple.

    This temple was the first to be built upon the founding of the city by King Mangrai in 1297. The oldest structure is the stupa, aka the Elephant Stupa, so named because of the elephant statues that around the base that support the structure.

    The main temple has a high altar with a golden statue of the Buddha calling Mother Earth to Witness his past deeds. All around this statue is an assorted collection of Buddha statues of different sizes and poses.

    A wonderful Thai Temple to visit.

    Nice temple in the outskirts of Nimman worth a short detour if you are nearby. The white pagodas are beautiful, not the most impressive of chiang mai but worth it !

    I visited over a year ago and have heard theres has been some restoration work so things might be different now. When I visited, from the outside the temple had a nice older, dark wood appearance to it that kept things simple. Upon entering, this allowed the massive golden buddha statue framed in a nice case to really stand out which is definitely the highlight here.

    A little bit out of the way for me during my visit, I'm glad I took the walk. This complex had a nice mix of a the things I liked at the others temples in the area. What stood out the most were the guardian statues at the entrance by the street, and the detail in the architecture of the black and white main building. Be sure to take the time to visit here and walk around as theres a lot to see here and the grounds are larger than most of the other temples.

    Vipassana meditation here is a life changing, at first I just wanted to visit Chiang Mai and to find out about this place without any research before ,I just walked in. Now I want to practice more regularly,just fyi this place is not for the beginners, suggest that you should learn Anapanasati before coming here. Thank you Mae chi, all the monks ( pra ajarns) and the management of Wat Ram Poeng..

    I will keep practicing,I promise,once again thank you so much ,hope to go back again

    The temple is located not far away from the old city. The façade is intricate. Statues are stunning. The ambience is calm.
