“AMAZING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013

So beautiful, a true spiritual place. This is a must see for all visitors to Chiang Mai. Be respectful of this precious place, bow before the Buddha, don't touch anything, no pictures without permission, don't touch the monks, take of your shoes...

“Amazing!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

We were there when they were getting ready for the Loi Krathong festival and we really liked. It was a lot of people, but we had the opportunity to see how the monks get ready for the festival, the thai people coming to pray and make donations to the monks and of course enjoy the architecture of the temple. It was quite impressive.

“Temple of the Lion Buddha”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

This was one of our favorites wats we visited. The different buidling styles made it more interesting to us. The view from the back courtyard is really nice with the large white Chedi flanked by the darker sermon halls for contrast.

We were told not to purchase the birds to release for good luck since it only encouraging the ladies to catch more birds.

“Wat in the center of Chiang Mai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

THis is a smaller Wat, and pales in comparison to those in Bangkok, but what would you expect? It is a little gem hidden away near the park, and worth a visit with the camera. Add this one to your walking list.
