Best In Chiang Saen
Jan 2020
We reached this temple on a taxi tour to the golden triangle and the old temples in Chiang Saen. There are a number of ruins nearby, but this appeared to be the best maintained. Wat Chedi Luang was once, Chiang Saen’s main temple. There is a large chedi and the ruins of a wiharn nearby. There appears to be some renovation going on here, with a new roof visible and a new Buddha image installed, although the sides of the hall are still open. There are a number of tall trees here giving shade to the area.
Chiang Saen National Museum, Wat Phra Buat, Wat Mung Muang and Wat Maha That, are all within walking distance of Wat Chedi Luang. We visited all this ruins but the museum was closed for renovation. It took us about 1 hour to walk around and capture some pictures of this area.

Worth a visit

Impressive old temple worth a visit for half an hour if it's on your way. We liked the peaceful atmosphere as we met just a few other tourist who acted very respectful (like it should be ;-))

Tallest Monument in Chiang Rai
Apr 2019 • Couples
This is a very old temple – dating from 1290 – that has survived invasions and earthquakes. Some damage is still visible, but it is still pretty.

It is interesting because the Lanna style stupa is the tallest in the area.

The Buddha is a recent addition.

The grounds are a peaceful place to spend a few quiet minutes.

Lucky for the opportunity to visit one if the oldest temples here. Due to flooding, part of it suffered ruins. Nevertheless, still a timeless beauty and a peaceful place of worship

The Largest ‘Chedi’ in Chiang Seen
Feb 2019 • Solo
its name literally means ‘the large pagoda’ where we can witness the largest one in Chiang Seen city which was restored and survived many earthquakes, the main temple hall is interesting for being newly built and fully function on the old temple basement, just look at the difference

Location: *****
on Phaholyothin road in the middle of Chiang Saen town, easily accessible by private car or taxi and public transport

Universal design: ***
the place is designed for wheelchair person with hand-railed toilet and wide walkway, but the main temple hall entrance has many steps more than 10 cm. high that required physical lifting, no disabled parking

Cleanness: ****
in general, the place is well kept clean with good maintenance

Not much to see
Mar 2019
Part of the place resembled temples that you see in Siem Reap; other than that there is nothing much and it will only take you 10 minutes to complete the visit.

One of the oldest temples in town. Located in the old city of Chiang Sean. Chedi Luang, means 'big chedi; in Thai. The complex is surrounded by some very old teak trees.

Unique temple
Jan 2018 • Couples
We took a tour of the Golden Triangle from Chiang Rai and it was mostly a wasted half day.

This temple was the only highlight. It is ancient and is located on a very peaceful site. It only takes a few minutes to visit.
