Wat Chedi Luang - Buddhist Temple, Chiang Mai: 33 reviews and 100 photos
This is one of my favorite wats in Thailand. The large chedi is built in the old Lanna style, constructed around 1441. It's now in partial ruins due to a large earthquake, which occurred in the 16th century. For a time, this was the home of the holiest Buddha image, the Emerald Buddha before it was moved to it's final location, Wat Phra Kaew in Bankgok.
The wat has gone through some major reconstruction work. Mostly repairing the naga staircases.
At night, the large chedi is lit up at night and looks beautiful.
Address: Phra Pok Klao Road.
Directions: In the old city.
