Wat Pan Tao, Chiang Mai

(4.4/5 based on 480+ 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.

  • Told him the day before in a car the next day the gilded Chedi Luang stupa, go by bike, near Chedi Luang, was right next to Wat Chedi Luang. In Chiang Mai, the Northern Temple is characterized by temples in Bangkok do not strip filled with fluttering was doing well. Woven bamboo than in the main stupa was being repaired, sand pagoda-like, into occasions for celebrating? With that. In going to think Buddha image of the temple's gilded, statue was the formal worship of Thailand to the Buddha image of the temple. Sand instead of sand so, really roots sand coming is carrying it.
