Wat Pan Tao, Chiang Mai

(4.4/5 based on 460+ 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.

  • New year 2017 to come. Chiang Mai really that many guys! This is measured through a holiday. Kinda good Bora parliamentarian of the old show's magical good picture taken comes out pretty. A spacious Temple, take advantage! Visit the WAT Buddha, to the much more convenient. There are no parking spaces! Need to find parking on the street suggest going pretty well.

  • While we walked down towards Wat chedi luang, this small temple came up on the way. It looked dark and ancient and so drew my attention. There was a golden statue of lord Buddha in a sitting pose.
