Another of the must do sights of the old city in my opinion. Well worth the visit and within easy walk from several other of the temples/Wats.

...so there is no need to seek this one out in particular. We did, but along the way saw three other beautiful wats that felt more impressive and had fewer tourists. Wander the streets for 20 minutes and you'll get your fill of temples without needing to hunt down any particular ones.

So close to central Chiang Mai and well worth a visit. Peaceful garden surrounds, lots of history and lots to see. Very interesting place, and it was quiet when we visited (not a lot of other tourists at the time we were there).

This is a real haven in the busy streets of Chiang Mai. The Wats are so impressive and the decoration really beautiful.

Another stunning temple.The intricate gold designs are awesome.We were privileged to be there when a wedding was taking place.It was just beautiful! The Buddhist chanting by the monks conducting the service was moving.My husband was so moved he had tears in his eyes.The wedding service was simple but so spiritual.The Buddhist quotes in the garden are thought provoking.
