On Tha Pae Road a block east of the Gate, this is a surprisingly quiet and attractive compound. It’s an old site, but the viharn only dates to 1865. The white chedi behind it is from an earlier period. With its overlapping roofs and big...More

Lovely environment and beautiful temples - can you see more of them? dress codes must be observed. Women not allowed into some of the temples. have to pay for all sorts of things. But very beautiful and appealing.

This temple complex is located just outside the Old City - just east of Tha Phae Gate. Although it is located on a busy street, once you enter and are within the high walls, it is as if the outside world ceases to exist. It...More

it is a very beautiful design and architecture. the roof is exceptionally done with layers. inside the compound it is quiet and peaceful. no doubt there are many temples in chiangmai but all the designs are different.

Very peaceful & clean grounds, the Monks were busy painting & cleaning. A lot of silver accents & there was a man on the grounds making silver pieces, possibly to replace some. Worth a look if you're in the area.
