Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A very nice temple, with a nice wooden bridge surrounded by coloured lanterns. Different from the other temples of the city. Worth 0aying it a visit!

Lovely, serene temple grounds - definitely worth stepping off the main walking street and wandering around the grounds.
Buy a bag of fish food and relax and enjoy feeding the fish and taking in the natural beauty and history.
very cool.

This very small and less visited temple was used for the coronation of Lanna kings in the 16th century. Nowadays, you can see a nice golden Buddha statue in the prayer hall, a large collection of giant gongs and interesting and old white stone Buddha head outside.

I decided to visit Wat Chet (Jet) Lin because our guidebook said it had a collection of gongs, which sounded really interesting (no pun intended!). However, upon arrival, I found only two. Looked everywhere--don't know if the guidebook had outdated info or what.

While the wat itself is very nice, it's the grounds that are the star of the show. Benches placed along a pond with colorful flags gives the wat a park-like atmosphere. It provides a bit of respite in the middle of Chiang Mai.

If your time is limited, this is skippable. If you are walking by, do stop in to see the grounds.

Wat Chet Lin (or Wat Jet Lin) is a Buddhist temple in Chiang Mai. It is located in Prapokkloa Road, inside the Chiang Mai Old City Walls. It is only 350 meters away from the Famous Wat Chedi Luang.
It's an Airy, Tranquil temple with a Beautiful pond. It's like a hidden Gem. It's open from very early in the Morning (4 a.m.) and the Visiting is Free. If you go there in the morning you can park your motorbike in the temple's yard.

Very pleasant space to get away from the hustle and bustle outside. Not crowded with large groups of tourists as at the more popular temples. Admission is free, and they even have a cool labyrinth. Enjoyed sitting by the pond watching the birds land on lily pads.

I have been travelling to Chiang Mai for 16 years and I've discovered this lovely place just a week ago. A place to go and relax, but also have a coffee if you like, in the heart of the city. I will visit again when I'm in the city in the future.

This temple is a rare gem. It is also called Jetlin, Jedlin, Chedlin.
It possesses many quirky features worth seeing. As you enter you get to see a huge stone Buddha head. In the courtyard of the temple complex you get to meet the bizarre five-eyed panda-like creature. This mythical animal eats hot coals and defecates gold. Next you get to see the black sunglasses donning skeleton dressed in dashiki clothes.

Currently listed on Google Maps as ‘Wat Jedlin’ this interesting temple boasts traditional Thai Buddhist design, accompanied by a large ancient Wat toward the rear of the main temple and a large pond at the rear of the grounds.

If you want to see the catfish in the pond, head to the rear of the site and walk over the bamboo bridge. Here you will also see a new temple under construction.
