    This temple is worth the 308 step climb (you can drive) as you feel you're going to the sky and leaving the world behind. The stuppa is four sided each with it's own message, while the temple proper i...  more »

    This will sound horrible, but the modern temple section really distracts from the ancient, although partially rebuilt, Cheddi. Bonus points for the toilet complex, if you've been holding one in for a while you can release the beast here in relative comfort.

    One of the best temples in Chiang Saen and one of the most picturesque, (constructed in 1290 by King Saen Phuh, the 3rd ruler of the Lanna kingdom). Features a giant stupa (88 meters high and 24 meters round), old temple walls, and an AWESOME cafe (Heaven and Earth), great to sit with a cup of coffee and take in the ancient temple. Friendly salespeople on the grounds too.

    Located near the Town Centre, in one of the historic part, old, original, different, to visit temple.
