City center temple

Nothing special but we were made to feel very welcome at this temple on the street where all the bars are.

This is a very small temple worth a visit if you are in the area. The temple is smaller than a lot of other temples in Chiang Rai but it is well maintained and good for passing time if you are in the area.

In comparison to other temples, this has been left to get a bit scruffy, not really the best unless you happen to be on Jedrod road.

All the temples are very beautiful. Every temple has something unique and different about them. Just remember ladies to have something to cover up as you go in the temple. No shorts, No dresses, no tank tops

Its a lovely peaceful place which is juzt a walking distance to bus station. Lovely use of paint. Architecture is simple yet defined. A lot of parking inside. Do find at least 30 minutes free if you plan to visit this place..15 min photography and 15 min do pray:-)
