Wat Pan Tao, Chiang Mai
(4.4/5 based on 440+ 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.
