There’s nowhere quite like it, which is why we’re taking you exploring city’s best temples with a knowledgeable guide. Wat Suan Dok has a collection of gleaming white chedi, which are Buddhist mausoleums. The white spires contrast dramatically with the mountains in the background making the spot a favourite among photographers. The ashes of Chiang Mai’s royal families are interred here. Admire at the 14th century Wat Phra Singh, a stellar example of Lanna architecture displayed in high-pitch, three-tier roofs and elaborately carved wood gables. This temple is revered for its Buddha statue. The Phra Singh, which gives the temple its name, is based on a lion Buddha yet has many human characteristics. Also visit Wat Chedi Luang, this large Buddhist temple in the heart of Chiang Mai is one of the city’s most famous locations. The enormous crumbling chedi built in 1441 is surrounded by striking elephant and serpent statues. These snake-like animals are known as nagas: mythical creatures who guard temples of great value! Chiang Mai’s oldest temple is another must-see. Built in 1297, Wat Chiang Man houses two sacred and ancient Buddha statues. Be amazed by the Chang Lom chedi, known as the elephant chedi. This mausoleum is rimmed by brick-and-stucco elephants that appear to be supporting on their backs the structure’s upper floors. Redeem informationVoucher type: Not neededVoucherless.
