  • We hope to come up at this temple to worship the relics of the owner, Doi Tung, once in life. We came up to close on the relics with thunderstorm. Very heavy rain, but we didn't give it up by driving a motorcycle up beautiful views along the way, much greenery in the rainy season, from the history we read Doi Tung or rafter that Wat Phra Maha Shin Elemental Lord. Located on the chest of DOI Nang non Huai khrai Mae Sai district, Chiang Rai, built in the reign of King City achu South Ionian lapses phan or Mae Chan District in the present day. There is a lot more history for everyone? Happy up until the penthouse.

  • A nice place especially when they visited him in the evening after the visitors are gone. Many of the details and a part of the history of the Royal mother.

  • We then went to a rental car parked at the pickup truck up to the Charter are Wat Phra that DOI Tung. Doi Tung and Mae FAH Luang garden to many people, it is not expensive (enough to price a little), an experienced space people up is better than the alternative, relatively steep and twisty enough.

  • 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.
