This is one of the prettiest Wats I've seen. I believe it is a "working" Wat as there were many Monks on the grounds. Unfortunately, all the building were closed.

This is a beautiful temple compound half-hidden in a small lane near Chang Puak Gate. The conical brick chedi in the back is quite old, but the rest of the compound buildings are relatively new. Wat Saen Muang Ma Luang is a Burmese temple, and...More

Tucked away, down a narrow, yet impressive driveway lies this small temple complex. I stumbled upon this completely by accident while wandering around the Old City. I asked around, but not much was known beyond its name. This is most definitely a ‘working’ temple, not...More

There are brash golden temples, but this one is a true delight to see. Go after breakfast when few people are around. The style combines what’s best of temples in this part of the world.

A nice old wat off the beaten track, very close to the north gate. It's very quiet here as very few tourists visit it

I am amazed that this temple does not receive the attention it deserves...the beauty of the architecture and art in this temple far surpasses many temples I visited in Chiang Mai and Bangkok, including Doing Suthep, which I feel is overrated (only go there if...More

Brilliant 'little' spot, and not on the tourist map. A hidden gem, really. There are a lot of buildings with interesting architecture and design. And no tourist attractions at the entry, just glorious Buddhist buildings and statues. It was quiet and peaceful, not a lot...More

Although basically new it is quite thrilling to see the work that has gone into it. You may also see some working monks- yes some actually do work and not a tourist in site. If you get too tired have a delicious fruit juice made...More

Impressive and stately temple and very well maintained but not one of the more serene or intimate and all the buildings look modern. When visiting midday everything unfortunately was locked including the main viharn and there were no worshipers. The old chedi however has real...More
