    by PierreZA

This is Chiang Mai?s most famous temple. It is situated on the mountain, just outside the city. At night, it was possible to see the lights of the temple from Chiang Mai City.
It is a very peaceful retreat, even with the amount of visitors. There are steps you can take to reach the Wat, or you may use the funicular. It is not that hard to climb the steps.
The Wat is a complex of beautiful buildings and several Buddha images.
Remember to take off your shoes before entering the main courtyard. Also bear in mind that this is still a religious complex, where people are worshipping.
