  • 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.
