Wat Chedi Luang, Chiang Mai Reviews

  • This is a truly magnificent peice of Chiang Mai culture and history. Definitely don't leave the city without visiting these ruins! It's only 40baht to get in and definitely worth the price! Beware that you must follow the dress code which is similar to many other residents Buddhist temples throughout Asia. This temple has many smaller temples and shrines all around it so I'd recommend wearing shoes that are easy to put on and take off.

  • What2Do in Chiang Mai - Prove you have been to Chiang Mai Well, 1. Of course, this is one of the things must do when you are in CM. The temple is about 600 years old! 2. Discover your zodiac animal and perform a small donation. 3. Go in the morning or during evening to get best photo shots. 4. Count how many elephant statue at this wat. I wonder is the number signify something? 5. Spend quality times and be awed by the architecture.

  • Very recommended. It is a temple complex. In the center you can see the main structure (14th century) that kept in the past the Emerald Buddha and around other temples built afterwards. Also you can see quickly the effect of the earthquake (in 1545 therefore the Emerald Buddha was moved to another place). Visit can takes between 1h-2h. From my personal point of view, the most beautiful Temple in Chiang Mai city.

  • - 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.
