I stumbled on this interesting little temple whilst wandering around the back streets of Chiang Mai, it features some beautiful jade statues of Buddha amongst the many relics on display, After asking for permission first I was told there was no problem with me taking photographs inside the temple, something which is not allowed in many temples in Thailand, in fact the monk was quite keen for me to do so.
Also as a previous reviewer has said the temple has very friendly monks, the one who I met was very keen to tell me about the history of the temple and that he was very interested in the English Premier League, he knew more about it than I did, he spent the best part of an hour telling me how much he enjoyed it, and that he watched every game, a very nice guy to talk to
Unfortunately this is not one for the disabled in wheelchairs as there are a few steps to get inside the temple
You can find Wat Ou Sai Kham just off Thae Pae gate if you cross the road outside Hotel M and go through Tha Pae Gate, you see Starbucks, just past there and there is a little soi to your left called Chang Moi Kao Road, it is about 300 yds up that soi on the right
