This is by far IMO one of the most beautiful Buddhist temples in the whole of Thailand. The people in the area are super helpful and willing to show you around. Great if you have a few hours to spare to go exploring.

When in Chiangmai take the opportunity to visit this place. To see real life the stone carvings that look as if an actual elephant was infront of you is incredible. Take a day exploring the streets and visiting the temples, you won’t regret it.
