  • Beautiful temple with expansive grounds surrounding it. When you enter the gates you feel like you are entering an ancient world. So many corners and private places to check out and escape the crowds. Visited here both in the morning and in the evening. Highly recommend doing both.

  • One of the most ancient and impressive temple in the city of Chiang Mai. Wat Chedi Luang massive chedi (pagoda) was built over 600 years ago. At its peak it towers a distinctive feature in Chiang Mai skyline. It was once the home of the Emerald Buddha, Thailand's most sacred religious relic. Damaged during an earthquake in 1545, and reduce to nearly half of its original size yet it is still impressive structure. Visually stunning, peaceful and serene. Plenty of things to see and photographs. Highly recommended.

  • 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!

  • The structure is very impressive and even beautiful in its unfinished condition. Surrounded by several smaller temples it's a nice oasis in the city where you can walk around and just enjoy the peace as you take in the views. One of the "must see" temples in Chiang Mai.

  • Beautiful, ancient, more than 600 years old temple/pagoda. Visually stunning and easy to access. There is a monk chat place, where you can also talk with different monks about anything 😊 should see it !
