Popped in as I was intrigued by the giant and extremely long Nagas that are on the wall on the entrance from Tha Phae road. Templeis built in a Burmese style with a classic intricate stupa. The inside of the temple is nothing much but the painted columns and the intricate front are quite good. What made this for us... More

Came to a big Burmese style Chedi which could do... More

This temple is a large temple with all of the usual features. It has a nice Burmese chedi and is a quiet space. It would not be top of my Chiang Mai list.

A slightly different looking Wat but the only one in Chiang Mai that we found to be seemingly abandoned with no one around. Very peculiar indeed. Still interesting to look at and plenty others around !!

The temple is easy to miss. Almost opposite Wat Bupharam, there's a red gate on Tapae road. Inside is a lane lined by nagas on either side. The lane opens out into the Wat compound. The temple displays many Burmese details. The Burmese-style chedi is the central building of the wat & is beautiful with its rainbow of mirrored tiles... More
