Wat Chedi Luang, Chiang Mai Reviews

  • Main Temple in the Middle of Town... Visually Stunning. Easily do-able on your own.... but there is no English signs explaining the Temple's history, which would be nice... So for that alone it may be worth hiring a guide. Definitely worth a visit!

  • This place is amazing, a great peace of history everyone should see while staying Chiang Mai. The entrance Fee is super cheap compared to other entrance fees and the impressions and memories you keep. However, it is usually crowded with tourists. Depending on the time of the day, you can take amazing photos of the sun reflecting on one of the sides of the temple. Definitely a must see during your Chiang Mai trip, everyone can afford it and everyone will be absolutely impressed by the massiveness of this ancient building.

  • Well maintained, friendly, open, and inexpensive temple complex. Located close (possibly within) a monk educational center, this temple is a essential stop in your visit to Chiang Mai. As with all temples in Thailand, ensure you're wearing long pants and modest clothing. Check out as many buildings as you can and don't forget to chat with the monks.

  • The temple is beautiful but I don‘t get this ancient rule that women cannot enter a temple because they „menstruate“...does not make sense at all and I don‘t think any God has invented this prohibition, this is men-made. Also, what is discriminating are the signs showing that women have to cover up everything (e.g. shoulders and legs) whereas men can enter the temple with short pants and strapless shirts. Only 1 star due to this discriminating and ridiculous rule. I‘m happy to get any reasonable explanation for this.

  • Our first Buddhist temple visit in Thailand.. Wat Chedi Luang is a beautiful, huge and serene place in the the heart of Chiang Mai city. The infrastructure and the architecture of the temple is remarkable ..
