Know as Chiang Mai's oldest temple, Wat Chiang Man used to be the residence of King Mengrai. It is located inside the walled city on Rachakinai Road. King Mangrai allegedly lived here while the new city of Chiang Mai was being constructed.
Enshrined in Wat Chiang Man is a tiny crystal Buddha called Phra Setang- Kamanee. It is thought to have the power to bring rain. Another image, called Phra Silakao, reflects the fine workmanship of Indian craftsmen from hundreds of years ago. The pagoda has rows of elephant buttresses at its base.
