  • It was beautiful temple, its quite not to many guest come. You can see local people go there to pray, and to do the offerings. Peacful place 😍
  • Nice old temple, on the north side of the moat, to the west of the North city gate. It's a very old temple and has lots of charm. I wandered around for free but didn't go insdei
  • This is the 3rd oldest temple in Chiang Mai. Built about 650 years ago. Visit this temple and go the the main hall to ask the abbot for blessing. He can speak and understand English. Or you may have a casual talk with the man selling drinks with his motorbike. He said he's been selling drinks for 30 years in this temple. Fulfill your day.
