This place is set within a meditation retreat. Don't expect gaudy temples. What you will find is a serene retreat with a beautiful Buddha at the end of a tunnel. And a huge ancient Chedi. Very peaceful very quiet very few tourists. Go in the tunnel and bow and make an offering to Buddha.

Come to this temple on a Saturday to witness the new monk hood ceremony, it is the most crowded period of the week. Do hire a driver because there are no red bus to get back.

If you have time on the way to Doi Suthep, you can stop by. If not, just pass by. I can see it in ten minutes.

Definitely worth seeing if you would like to see a temple which is slightly different to all the temples you have seen so far in Chiang Mai. A nice garden around it too.

I've visited this temple and for sure would go back to it on one of my next trips. A very zen atmosphere. Very different from the 'blingbling' temples that are often promoted. Very special atmosphere. Nice place for taking pictures not only of the stupa but especially of all the statues you'll find here. Untouched. Real. Worth a visit!
