As the title above suggests you can give it a miss. Much better stuff to see. Was not really impressed.

A beautiful temple like all the Wat's I visited. Beautiful inside and out. Plenty of smaller Wat's around the main temple to see. This was the first Wat I went to and it's a wonderful site. An old brick Pagoda behind the temple is a bit of Thailand history. Worth a visit

This is a little beyond the old city square, but definitely worth checking out. You can use a pulley to offer a cup of water to Buddha.

THIS TEMPLE IS LOCATED ACROSS THE road from the north side of the old city [near the North & West corner]. The various parts of the temple are very well maintained and intricate. Well worth a visit!!!

Very different from all the other temples in Chiang Mai. Different style and architecture than most. Beautiful and worth a stop to compare to the other nearby temples.
