We paid a visit to this temple and met three very kind English speaking monks. They were extremely patient with us and willing to share their knowledge of Buddhism. We wanted to buy some jade Buddha pendants and they spent about half an hour to...More

We came across this Wat when we took a shortcut from our guesthouse. A small Wat with numerous jade Buddha's. They also sell jade objects.

Public restroom! Look for the Jade Buddha signs. Shoes off. Nice to visit the temple also. And please do take your shoes off prior to entering the temple or the restroom.

Most tourists visiting Chiang Mai don't know of this temple. Compared to Wat Chiang Man or Wat Chedi Luang, this is not a must-visit. However, if you are in the area hunting for second-hand books, it shouldn't be a problem to stop by for 10...More
