The Temple of Dawn was amazing. In addition to being beautiful, the temples reflect Buddhism history and continues to operate by Monks, who will give blessings to visitors.

Hello, unfortunately, I have no idea. I did visit some temples today in Chiang Mai and they are all open. Please be careful with taxi drivers telling you that they are closed. They sometimes try to take you elsewhere.
