This temple is close to Chiang Mai city. It is very tranquil place. I realize many people go for meditation. It is another historic site in Chiang Mai. Lots of Buddha statues kept inside a tunnel. There are intersections inside the tunnel. I can see...More

We decided to visit this temple based on Trip Advisor reccomendation and we were not disappointed. It is a very peaceful place. There are three tunnels that link togather to make a further temple. We are glad we took the time to visit.

First built in the 14-th century, abandoned and restored in1940s and reestablished in 1960s. Wat Umomg is a beautiful example of a Thai forest temple. Covering a large area it includes tunnels leading to underground shrines.

Not really - wheelchair access is not really a priority in Thailand. Very view locations/wats facilitate wheelchairs. You can get into the complex, but not inside temples/buildings
