Wat Jed Yod is located in peaceful garden like grounds. Built in 1453 it is named for its seven spires. There are some attractive relief carvings and several chedis or stupas in the grounds. Somewhat off the tourist path, this is well worth a visit if you like the peace and spirituality of Buddhist temples.

Worth walking the grounds, find the cemetery and notice the way the people are commemorated. Also worth noting is the preservation and demise of the old

Wat Jed Yod is a standout among the countless temples in the Chiang Mai area - the trees and other foliage deepens an already peaceful and tranquil setting. It's a place where you can simply be with your thoughts.

Established in 1455 CE, and purposely built in imitation of the style of the Mahabodhi Hall in Bodhgaya, India, where Lord Buddha became enlightened. This is a royal temple, housing the ashes of King Tilokarat, who convened the eighth Buddhist Council here in 1477 CE, the first such council held in Thailand. The wat is still active and is a...

This historic wat, dating from the 1400's is remarkable for the Indian influence. There are several Budha trees and many very old brick buildings all located in a lovely shaded garden. A very pleasant stop.

Ever wonder about the history of old Siam? This is a great place to go to learn about an ancient kingdom of Siam. It is also very beautiful, great for photos.

It is just 10 minutes to old city. It is one of the old style temple. Anyone who love historical places must visit this one of the good sample.

Yeah! If you're Buddhist, you know how significant that is! Plus, it contains a (poorly copied) replica of the Mahabodhi temple in Bodh Gaya. And the whole temple complex is pretty. A nice mix of ruins and living temple space.

Stunning royal temple in Chiang Mai, nearly a millennium old so there are ruins as well as a full temple in the centre of the complex. Great place to get blessed or see some authentic Thai traditions

Wat chet yod is a fifteenth century wat just outside the Chiangmai old city. It is not as well know as other wats in Chiangmai but is well worth a visit. It quiet and lots of land. Great for a wander around. Slowly on a hot day. When visiting it is well worth joining a group or getting an individual... More
