Wat Chiang Man, Chiang Mai
(4.5/5 based on 600 reviews on the web)
Visit the first temple of Chiang Mai at Wat Chiang Man, where King Mengrai once lived in the 14th century. The attraction consists of meditation halls, gold-topped structures, and old Buddhist decorations. Inside the largest hall, look for the oldest Buddha image in the city, a statue holding a begging bowl. The smaller meditation hall hosts the crystal and marble Buddhas. Walk around the temple grounds to find the Chedi Chang Lom, a structure surrounded by stone elephants.

  • 清曼寺位於古城內, 古城北面,是清邁最古老的寺廟。 這間寺廟很大, 可以逛很久, 而且要穿長褲去。 個人覺得挺值得去。 
  • One of our favorites! 100% recommended. It's a short tour visit but that is worth including in your step x chiang mai

  • Free entrance and totally worth a visit. I believed this is the oldest temple in Chiangmai area and it's no worse than other temple that charge entrance free. Also I believe this temple is very dog friendly... a lot of stray dogs live here and they have a little temple that kept four babies dog safe .... so cute!!!!
