If you are in the area, definitely stop by this temple. There is the main temple where visitors could go in (no fee), smaller temples (didn't seem like tourists were going in) as well as the stunning elephant statue/shrine. The whole property area is beautiful,...More

One of the oldest temples in old city of Chiang Mai and perhaps one of the less visited ones. Entrance is free, but the temple is definitely worth a visit.

What is special about this temple is that there are 15 elephant statues in the tower behind it.Location is not hard to find, but also famous in Chiang Mai,still can appreciate.

This temple in the old part of Chiang Mai has a wonderful atmosphere. It is not as frequently visited like most other temples. We did enjoy the quiet!

This is one of the most beautiful temples in Chiang Mai and the elephant structures are really nice too! It was so peaceful inside and not packed like the Bangkok temples!

Everywhere you turn, you're bound to come across a temple. We wanted to explore more of what ChiangMai had to offer in such a short time and so we picked Wat Chiang Man. It was the first temple build in ChiangMai and therefore the oldest....More
