Thailand Travel | The Three Must-Visit Beautiful Temples in Chiang Mai - Wat Chiang Man

Chiang Mai Wat Chiang Man🙏 Wat Chiang Man วัดเชียงมั่น Wat Chiang Man has a long history and is the first Buddhist temple in the ancient city of Chiang Mai. It was personally supervised and built by King Mengrai, the first king of the Lanna Kingdom, in 1297. The architecture integrates the architectural styles of Lanna and Sri Lanka. The main Buddha hall of Wat Chiang Man is a Lanna-style building. The main Buddha statue of Shakyamuni in the hall was made in 1465. Behind the main hall is a stone seat with a golden top and a Buddha pagoda carried by fifteen elephants. The size of the elephants is carved according to the proportion of real elephants, so the scale of the entire pagoda is quite magnificent. In addition, the scripture hall in the pond is also very unique.
