The massive chedi, commissioned in 1527 by King Ket, is flanked by little niches, each with an image of Buddha. Inside, the chedi houses the ashes of many kings of the Mengrai dynasty. Walk around the grounds, taking time to admire the intricate wooden architecture and peaceful, spiritual atmosphere.

  • It's easy to miss the entrance. In new buildings and old huge stupa. Offerings to the old pagoda is carrying to the top rope but interesting.

  • We were walking in the early hours of the morning on the way to another temple, saw it and stopped to take a look. It is an awesome place, with a stupa which for many years was the highest in the city. It is very near Chang Phuak gate.
