Wat Chedi Luang, Chiang Mai Reviews

  • Frankly, the temple is really nice and beautiful and the price is cheap (20 baht per person = less than 1€/$). This is the most visited temple in central Chiang Mai. There is one only thing I do not like: one of the temples allowed only access to men. I could understand their habits of disregarding women on a religious basis, I'm not fighting their culture. But why on Earth do they then charge the same (even though if it is do little) to a woman than to a man if she is not able to see the whole thing? At least they could inform in advance and let you decide if you want to access the temple area.

  • Very impressive temple! The first of my visit in Chiang Mai but no doubts it was my favorite! Take your time to visit everything! The day I visited there was a typical market, music and scouts everywhere! Don’t forget to take off your shoes!

  • The old chedi is as beautiful as I remembered it all those years ago. The main cathedral/prayer hall at the front is beautiful, go inside and enjoy the cooling shade and marvel at those huge golden pillars. Toilets are super clean with slippers to use (unless if you encounter a big group of China tourists...). So much of development around the old Chedi Luang, wish they'd stop though. Security was friendly and you can park your bicycles at the motorbike parking area.

  • The most famous, almost the same age with the city itself. The main attraction of the temple is a huge chedi, 98 m high and 54 m wide. Pagoda was raised in 1481 and had an even greater height, but due to the earthquake of 1545 it was partially destroyed.

  • Simply Stunning. Visited yesterday. 31/05/18. Had hired a driver to take us to a few Wats/Temples/Chedi around the City. This was our first stop. It was a Spectacular, Mind Blowing, with Magnificent Monuments. We used up all our time here so had to do a renegotiation of price with our driver....no problem. He was even taking "selfies". Everywhere you looked was a photo opportunity. You'd be looking at one of the Temples and then something minute would catch the corner of your eye. There were so many moments of, " did you see this? Did you see that?" I was in Awe of the History told in so Many Different Ways. From the Magnificent Breath Taking Chedi Luang itself. To the Giant Trees that have stood for Centuries over this Sacred Place. The tiny Precious Stone Statues inlaid with Gold and Gems. And then around the corner in a nondescript little Temple the most Incredible Golden Buddha. I'll be returning in the next few days to spend much more time there. Even just to sit under one of the Giant Trees in the shade to only LOOK. Oh, one of the Temples is off limits to Women. It's a Religious Rule. Don't be offended. The Admission for non Thai is 40 baht. The Toilets are spotless.....use for a small donation. There are stalls for Souvenirs, cold drinks and snacks. Take plenty of water to drink. Wear a hat or have an umbrella. Enjoy.
