Although Wat Jed Yod is the least visited of the temples in Chiang Rai yet it is a significant one in unfolding the religious faith of Thailand. Translated as the “seven peaks”, this temple has seven chedis which top its structure in the temple complex. This temple is considered to be the copy of Mahabodhi Temple at Bodhgaya in India. Inside the temple there is a cave-like hall in the rectangular base that supports the seven chedi, while a more typical modern wiharn stands in front of the old monument. The exterior of the temple is of similar interest. There are several sculpted figures that survive on the façade of this temple. Whilst many parts are missing, you can still see some finely detailed figures.
