• I love the monks here. They practically blend in with the temple. - Ana Santos

Golden Temple

Newer Older

Explore Front Page (#6) on June 5th. Thank you!!!

The temple of Wat Phra That Doi Suthep is certainly one of the most important temples in Chiang Mai, as well as one of the most revered among all Thais. The giant Chedi (seen here), covered with gold, is the dominant sight inside. It contains the Buddha relics. Wat Prathat Doi Suthep dates back from the fourteenth century.

The whole Chiang Mai set can be viewed here.
