Wat Lok Molee, Chiang Mai

(4.6/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Dating back to the 14th century, Wat Lok Molee houses one of the region's oldest and most impressive chedis (Buddhist reliquaries). 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.

  • Just outside the city walls. Inner moat area, Temple famous for efficient event in order bike, Rockmore-side traffic too and gave the bike. I think tradition is very well known and not so in the Middle Temple, pagoda in brick in Chiang Mai well in old well preserved I. I think also a traditional and well preserved. Impressive features of Chiang Mai Temple and a flapping strip of paper. Hanuman-NG was also a statue. Not famous so tourists from Chiang Mai and yes I think very good temples.
