"Wat Suan Dok" Wat Suan Dok - Buddhist Temple Tip by Willettsworld

This temple is located on a main road that leads west from the old city. Constructed by King Ku Nu in 1383, the bot in this compound contains a huge 500-year-old bronze Buddha image which is surrounded by well-preserved murals depicting Buddha's life. A variety of Buddhist amulets are sold around the wihaan, which was built in 1932. However, the main attraction are the numerous gleaming white chedi that contain the remains of the royal family of Chiang Mai. These were collected from different sites in Chiang Mai and placed here at the wish of Princess Dararatsmi in 1909.
