Very interesting for visit place. It will take you 30 minutes by car from Chiang Mai. There are not a lot of tourists. Mostly local Thai people from Chiang Mai and other places. Entry - free. Very good and interesting museum of LORD GANESHA.

Tired of Buddhist temples ? Then the Ganesh museum is a refreshing alternative. Approximately one hour South-West of Chiang Mai on Route 108 near Doi Lo. Here one will find amazing Thai/Indian architecture, history and culture. A photographer's paradise. Don't forget to get a picture...More

Advertised mostly as a “Ganesh Museum,“ this establishment is also a mixture of temple buildings and, an ashram, and was obviously founded by a devotee of Lord Ganesh. There are more impressive images of Ganesh than ever I saw in India. There appears to be...More

What at first appears to be an ordinary, quiet, rural temple, albeit dedicated to Ganesh, turns out to be an unexpectedly,varied and pleasant experience. It is large and some of the buildings are still under construction. The few waxworks are of a similar standard to...More

Somewhere along road 3018, someone has built a large scale temple / museum in honor of the Hindu god Ganesha. But it is popular amongst both local and tourist worshipers. I expected nothing but was impressed by the atmosphere and the large collection of Ganesha...More

This will only take an hour or two of your time and is reasonably close to Chiang Mai but you may take a car to get there. Ganesha Heaven with so many choices and nice to escape Chiang Mai

Exactly how do I get there from Chiang Mai using public transportation (sorry the question mark on this keyboard is not working). The nearby World's Largest Wooden Ganesh Statue on Suthep Road people have told me that they are having their Ganesh Birthday festival on the 15th through the 18th, and I would very much like to go. I would like to take several Hindu CMU university students from Bangladesh also. We don't have vehicles and we don't speak much Thai, so how can we go cheaply? Also, is there any place to stay near the festival or maybe any provision for people to sleep on the floor somewhere near the temple? Will be the festival activities be daytime or evening hours? I am American, have lived 3 years in Chiang Mai , know every place in the city like a guide and have visited many surrounding places, but this one sounds really, really difficult to get to as it is supposedly 5 km off the nearest junction!
