Owner description: Temple built on what were once a 14th-century monarch's gardens. Today, site of a Buddhist university and a popular spot for photographers, especially during sunset. Some of the temple's chedis (spires) contain ashes of Chiang Mai's royal family. Also, one can see half of a holy Buddhist relic brought from Sukothai in 1371, which unfortunately split into two upon arrival in Chiang Mai. The other half is buried at Doi Suthep. A 500-year-old bronze Buddha image, one of the largest in northern Thailand, is also housed here, in the small hall at the back of the compound.

Go early morning - sunrise and especially in cool season (Nov-Feb) there is often a little mist over Doi Pui which adds to the specticle.

This site contains not only temples which are used by the monks but also is a burial ground for the old Kings of Chiang Mai. In the front garden is a Bodi tree which is said to be the tree that Buddha sat under when gaining enlightenment. Here you can also make an appointment to speak with a monk.

lovely place and make sure you visit the small temple to the side - not just the main complex - it has one of the most beautiful Buddha's in North Thailand
