In the wat grounds you can get leg or thai massage. The people there are very experienced, and well worth a trip. Much better than any of the massage shops we tried.

I came across this temple while wondering the old part of Chiang Mai. It is a small but nice temple with a nice statue of Buddha inside. Also had a small eatery at the front on a Sunday night.

It's not located on the main street but it's not too hard to find. The best point was the Buddha light. How cool is that !
