We visited here during an annual festival. There were many people visiting but at no time did it feel too crowded. A large selection of food vendors were there

This is the most interesting of all the temples in Chiang Mai.
A mix of old and newer temples in the same complex with interesting grounds.
If you only have time to vis 1-2 temples make this the one.

Definitely drop by here when in Chiang Mai. It's a bunch of temples, but thynhave character. But all that is not worth 5/5, it was the chat to a monk program that totally made my day! Make sure you do it. Spent an hour with young thai monks with lots and lots of love.
