Wat Pan Tao, Chiang Mai
(4.4/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
Built in the 14th century, the small monastic temple of Wat Pan Tao serves the royal temple next door. Upon entry, look for the gilded wood carving over the main door depicting animals. Farther in, take time to admire the carved teak "wiharn," a chapel for people to pray in and a former royal residence. This structure features interesting items like a dhamma casket with Buddhist scriptures and a gilded stand. Work out when and for how long to visit Wat Pan Tao and other Chiang Mai attractions using our handy Chiang Mai vacation route planner.

  • Charming for being wooden. A great garden for photos and to rest. We went on a double date this was the favorite of women.

  • Located in the Centre, by not slip. Unusual in that it is built from wood from time to time, darken why partly resembles a Museum of wooden architecture in suzdal somewhere or in Norway on the island of Bygdøy:) The first temple is the second, where the monastic school for monks and showy stupa. The territory of the temple is small, everything looks about half an hour.
