Cute temple between the night market and the Tha Pae gate. Nice to visit. Free to enter. There are some tourists here but it's not too busy

it is a very beautiful design and architecture. the roof is exceptionally done with layers. inside the compound it is quiet and peaceful. no doubt there are many temples in chiangmai but all the designs are different.

Very peaceful & clean grounds, the Monks were busy painting & cleaning. A lot of silver accents & there was a man on the grounds making silver pieces, possibly to replace some. Worth a look if you're in the area.

Another one of the many temples scattered in this land, if you are walking past it is worth a look see, if you have to make a special trip, you have probably already seen many simaler temples, it is a pleasant temple.

This smaller temple is easy to walk past, but the grounds are very serene and the main hall worth a look. If you are making your way down Tha Phae road stop in.
