you need to enter the temple through an alley. the architecture and design is really well done. the intricate design on the wall is exceptional. the gold colour brings out the design. there are a few stupa inside the ground.

There is a long alley leading to the grounds lined with statues & wind chimes. Very peaceful, clean grounds & an ornate chedi.

A slightly different looking Wat but the only one in Chiang Mai that we found to be seemingly abandoned with no one around. Very peculiar indeed. Still interesting to look at and plenty others around !!

The temple is easy to miss. Almost opposite Wat Bupharam, there's a red gate on Tapae road. Inside is a lane lined by nagas on either side. The lane opens out into the Wat compound. The temple displays many Burmese details. The Burmese-style chedi is...More
