  • We are landed by chance here (ca. 50 min.) outside of Chiang Mai. It's off the tourist path, we were the only ones not Thai. It's something other than the temple which is otherwise entered into Thailand. A famous artist (Ganesh) has put together exhibits relating to Hinduism from around the world, which you can admire in two rooms. Furthermore, there is another Wax Museum, however renovations were here during our visit. There are still various prayer halls on the site. Just as one can get robes lend (200 BHT), Park you can outside and in the plant, admission is free.

  • Good museum to spend time. It was nice to have a guide tell you stories.
  • Knowledgeable & helpful staff, coffee bar & an excellent souvenir come ornament shop with items for sell from 30.00 - 50,000.00 Bhat. I visited on 19/01/16 & contrary to what Google Maps says it is very much open. Although about 500M to the left of the position shown. A great way to while away a couple of hours.
  • Great little free museum, with a focus on Ganesh.
  • I give it one star because it was free. Looks like everything was new and bought at gift shops. Drove 38km for this?!
  • Good free museum

Where to stay in Chiang Mai

While visiting Chiang Mai, keep in mind that the old town district and the area surrounding the famous night market offer both boutique (relatively expensive) and backpacker (relatively inexpensive) options. The riverside neighborhoods boast exclusive hotels and resorts, where comparatively pricey rooms come with good views and extensive facilities.
