  • Just outside the city walls, this temple was built in 1500, abandoned under Burmese and rebuilt in 1794. The temple is known for its large chedi, which have a square base white whitewashed guarded by octagonal middle section each corner chisels, dotted with porcelain flowers and five floors to Crown the stupa. Lanna style room is flanked by two poles.

  • Temple of the slightly smaller on the north side of the moat, is golden big Buddha and top standing white pagoda is at the bottom in gold. Because no tourists had settled down.

  • Not far from the historic center of Chiang Mai is Wat Chiang Yuen, a small shrine, consisting of viharna, Chedi and several smaller structures. His name translates as "Temple of long life". Although its foundation date is unknown, Wat Chiang Yuen is considered one of the oldest temples in Chiang Mai. Wat Chiang Yuen was the most important temple in the Kingdom of Lanna. After entering the narrow alley to the temple, there is a very large gold Buddha image, protected devjatiurovnevym ceremonial parasol on the flat roof of the structure.

  • Dominated by the enormous golden statue of Buddha outside, which is seen from the road. The large Chedi and ornate temple make this a worthwhile visit. The murals in the temple are remarkably detailed.
  • A hug statue of Buddha. Peaceful and beautiful temple. Glad to visit.
  • An interesting temple just off the road. It has its quirks, but not that impressive.
  • Good looking temple.
  • Peace
