  • The temple was founded in the 1500 's, but all extant structures belong to 1800 years or later. The viharn of Wat Saen Fang previously served as the Royal residence (Hee HIC) from Kawirolot in the 1860 's, and was converted in the Viharn, his successor Intauichajjanon in year 1878. The temple is also famous for its Burmese chedi, which is gilded glass mosaic. Ubosot which is topped with kinnaroj, a fusion of styles have Burmese and lennatov. From the old town came on foot)

  • This temple is located outside the old city walls and hidden outside the main street but not far from the Tha Pae Road. Ngumpet location makes it often escapes the tourist radar. I found this temple complex after touring the Warorot market is just a few hundred metres away. One of the interesting buildings in the complex is keberadaa chedi (stupa) Burmese-style with typical decorations sparkle glass mosaic. A cursory resemblance to Phaya Swedagon in Yangon. While other buildings around them while maintaining the typical architectural Lana. Quite worthy to enter the bucket list.

  • Nice old temple where you very rarely see any tourists. It's very quiet here. It makes a good shortcut from the Chiang Moi road to the Tha Pae road avoiding the traffic. It' has lots of atmosphere.  more »

  • Nice quiet temple not overrun by tourists. Its a nice place to take a short break while enjoying the peaceful atmosphere inside. They even have a cooler with free drinking water inside.
  • My place. Beautiful pagoda hidden near the hectic area of local market yet serene. You almost get this beyond time feeling on a good lighting day... Photoshoot here is not a bad idea at all.
  • Deep inside the market area a great temple with an impressive pagoda
  • A beautiful piece of architecture in the heart of Chiang Rai
