  • My driver suggested I come up here and I am so glad we did. You can walk up the stairs and then ring all the bells. 
  • It's quite a drive up a mountain but so worth the trek. The energy there is intense and healing. The famous bone is said to be resting inside one of the chedis behind the temple. 
  • For this temple you need a end over a steep road omhoogrijden to the top of the mountain. Basically you have good views of the area, but on the day we were there was that not impressive. The temple itself is quite small and adds for the non-experts, not so much to the other temples you can find anywhere in Thailand.

  • Beautiful little temple in a nice setting with an impressive row of bells. Worth a little detour if visiting Doi Mae Fah Luang Garden
  • Beautiful and cosy temple
  • One of the oldest temples at the top of the mountains in northern thailand. Definitely a must see if you want to see ancient monuments. There is a path of ancient bells and many gold buudah statues
  • I visited this site in 2000. My wife is from the Thai/Lao Chiang Khong region and it was an adventure you can't buy. We had a relative take us here on the backroads out of Mae Sai and we even stopped at a 3km long cave for lunch with no one there but us to go in and explore ( it was monsoon season and flooded so we got only in a few hundred feet). The views from the top of this mountain are incredible and the temple is impressive but not something you can't see in the valley area as well. The view will give you rice patties out to the horizon on the Thailand side and a dense jungle canopy into Mynamar. The roads are not for the weak of heart, as it will be like a roller coaster coming down and we had to pull over several times to cool off the brakes. The relatives blamed the brakes on us seeing a cobra across the road sunning himself and he was letting us know his power in our world.. Seriously, I could not make this up.. I will go again and hopefully miss the cobra's power
  • Getting to the temple was an adventure in itself - it certainly isn't well sign posted, and as you get closer the roads become a little more . . . . testing. There is nothing commercial here. No gift shops or touristy frills. What you get is an old temple sitting atop a mountain, with views over Thailand and Myanmar/Burma. Wonderfully peaceful. And two long ranks of bells line the pathway from the top of the steps to the temple itself.
