I came across this temple while wondering the old part of Chiang Mai. It is a small but nice temple with a nice statue of Buddha inside. Also had a small eatery at the front on a Sunday night.

Small temple. Well kept temple grounds with lots of cute art. They advertise that you can chat with a monk on Saturdays, but sent me to Wat Chedi Luang for that. All in all a little too touristy for my taste.

Whole of Chaing Mai is dotted with such temples made of excellent architecture. People seem to have poured money to maintain them.

We saw a lot of temples in this area, but this one was a nice small one to see. I suggest doing this temple along with others to get a comparison of big to small.
