    This temple has been around since the 15th century and once housed the famed Emerald Buddha, which is now in Bangkok. The old brick chedi is still in the temple complex and continues to be used as a place of worship. The main temple is now a more modern building in front of the car entrance. This has a stunning read and gold hall with a high altar that has a statue of a standing Buddha, flanked by two monks.

    Awesome experience, real rescue parc for the elephants, they take the time to explain how they and the elephants work. You all get uniforms as the elephants are used to them and trust them, so then we went on a walk with the elephants fully in liberty. They could go where they want and we were following. Then they took a bath and we helped to wash them.

    Was really nice experience. Watch out for other fake places, here they really buy the elephants and don't rent them for the tourist attraction.

    Also shout out to Andy our awesome guide! Was really best experience ever! We could touch and hug with the elephants and they were really nice. Would recommend to anyone!

    Ps lunch was really good as well (we did the half day morning tour)

    Visited this place during April 24, it is a must visit place in Chiang Mai. Architecture of the temple makes it unique. Mindset of people or monks in and around are very nice.

    This temple is located 15 km from Chiangmai city center. It can be reached by car or motorbike. It has breathtaking view as it is located in the hill. The interesting things are the golden pagoda and the buddha image (Luang Phor Tun Jai). Furthermore, visitor can see the buddha in three postures (standing, reclining and sitting).

    We did the half day morning elephant excursion and loved it! We were the only 2 on our tour, and after a nice drive through the countryside, we got to make food for the two elephants, feed them, then hike with them down to the river. We watched them eat for at least 45 minutes, then watched them bathe in the river, then feed them again. Lots of opportunities for pictures and videos and respectful interaction with the elephants. Our guide Toto taught us so much about the elephants and their keepers. We ended the morning with a delicious lunch and comfortable drive back to our hotel. This was a very special day!

    Thailand has so many great temples, this one is very unique and probably one of the most beautiful ones. It is a little hidden in Chiang Mai , so ask your way around or get a taxi it tuk-tuk . This is a fantastic artist piece of work with so much to discover in such a small temple.

    This temple was the first to be built upon the founding of the city by King Mangrai in 1297. The oldest structure is the stupa, aka the Elephant Stupa, so named because of the elephant statues that around the base that support the structure.

    The main temple has a high altar with a golden statue of the Buddha calling Mother Earth to Witness his past deeds. All around this statue is an assorted collection of Buddha statues of different sizes and poses.

    A wonderful Thai Temple to visit.

    This is one of the nice sparks I have seen in Thailand. The flowers and fauna is really pretty. A great place to go and it is not crowded and full of!!! Great day out. The temple is also quite amazing.

    It has the pagoda with outstanding beauty what was built in 1916, in Lanka-Sukhothai style. It has served as a burial ground for the Lanna royal family (white stupas). If you have spare time from Old Quarter of Chiangmai, you can visit this temple.

    I visited over a year ago and have heard theres has been some restoration work so things might be different now. When I visited, from the outside the temple had a nice older, dark wood appearance to it that kept things simple. Upon entering, this allowed the massive golden buddha statue framed in a nice case to really stand out which is definitely the highlight here.

    Great market and lots of things to see. Very busy and lots of food stalls. The sellers weren’t too pushy. Would recommend a visit.
