I knew nothing about this site and was very glad I went to visit. I was able to spend a long time in calm contemplation. Beautiful photos to remember my time there.

The most beautiful temple in the heart of Chiang Mai. You should definitelly visit this monument. Enter is for 40 baht. So it is not a bug deal. Worth.

Highly recommended place in Chiang Mai.
One of the most ancient and impressive temple in the city. Wat Chedi Luang massive chedi (pagoda) was built over 600 years ago. At its peak it towers a distinctive feature in Chiang Mai skyline. It was once the home of the Emerald Buddha, Thailand's most sacred religious relic.
Visually stunning, peaceful and distinguish.

The structure is very impressive and even beautiful in its unfinished condition. Surrounded by several smaller temples it's a nice oasis in the city where you can walk around and just enjoy the peace as you take in the views. One of the "must see" temples in Chiang Mai.

I often visit this temple, the atmosphere is excellent. You could feel the calmness and kindness permeate throughout the site. This temple is certainly a respectful place, it has monk's school and place where you can study about Buddhism. And the hugh Chedi or the landmark pagoda standing tall right behind the temple. Visit at any time of the day, or even in the evening. You could feel the positive energy flowing through you.

This temple is quite interesting due to the variety it holds. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the old town.

I was impressed with the history and also monk chanting. This is typical tourist attraction and you can spend about 20-30 mins.

This was an absolutely beautiful setting and temples. We really enjoyed going just for somewhere to sit and stare at it as it is very very beautiful. Doesn't need a vast amount of time to see it, but it is worth seeing if you are in Chiang Mai.

larger area, where different temples are located. One ancient temple is stunning, but you can't enter this temple. all other temples rather average. They ask an entry fee and rent you clothes to cover you completely. women are not allowed to enter the temples.

Wat Chedi was an amazing stone temple in the middle of the city. We followed lonely planets self guided walking tour and werent disappointed. It was $80baht for the 2 of us to enter and there were several ornately embellished buildings and temples around. We only spent 30 minutes walking around but it was worth it. Nice clean bathrooms.
