  • - 80bath Entrance - Well it's a "OK" temple (it's not going to blow you away) the old ruins behind the temple is nice you can walk around a bit the small temple are interesting but don't expect to much translations or to learn some background. Worth visiting? Not sure price is low so Yea why not stop by check it out but don't make it as a "must see thing"

  • Amazing temple and ruin that sits adjacent to each other. The ruin looks strangely out of place but it looks beautiful. You also have the opportunity to have a chat with some monks. Entrance fee is 40 baht. Also note, as you enter there's a small little temple next to the main one where entry is restricted to men only.

  • Nice temple. Recommend to come here. Sadly, the ruins have been restored with little knowledge but large amounts of cement.

  • One of my first stops in Chiang Mai, it was interesting to see an older, more worn-out temple (compared to the other well maintained ones). Makes me wonder about the history behind it... Some say it was destructed when the Burmese invaded (at some point?), some say it was an earthquake? I have no idea

  • The most famous temple in Chiang Mai, My hotel was near this temple, so I saw it numbers of time. It's really a majestic temple. Chiang Mai visit could not be completed without touring this temple. There are many temples within old city area.. you can say it's a city of temple.
