Place Of Worship
Wat Chiang Man (Thai: วัดเชียงมั่น − sometimes also written as Wat Chiang Mun) is a Buddhist temple (Thai language: Wat) inside the old city (which is contained within the city walls and moat) of Chiang Mai, in northern Thailand.
Extravagant and humble, all the elephants beautifully carved out. The tower is breath-taking! There are two temples here with ancient golden buddhist statues inside. It's peaceful and hardly any tourists because this is a bit far to walk to. Beware of the people selling birds for release! It's illegal and isn't religious at all!!
A great place to walk around and photograph if you like architecture of Thailand temples this one is ideal from the 13th century
I really like this temple, out of all the other temples I've visited in the old city. It's clean and refined, and has a certain calm to it. The elephant engravings on the tomb at the back of the temple, as well as the smaller temple on the right side, are both equally worth spending some time in. After this, you can always do a small walking tour around, visiting the other sights and sounds along the way.
After all the good reviews I was very disappointed... beef Kao Soy I ordered came with very little meat and the meat was not good quality, while the price was higher than in the similar places. The service was also nothing special... skip it.
Temple holds two old and very holy Buddha images. One is around 2,500 years old (on the right) and the other is 1,800 years old and on the left.
The one on the right is made of marble and the one on the left made of crystal.
Tranquil, old temple. The viharn around the two old Buddhas has scenes from Buddha's life painted on the walls.
