The Jinsha Temple is not a big temple, but it feels good, compared to the big temple definitely different. However, it is still worth everyone to play, the architecture style is still OK, it is necessary to burn incense.
Although the temples are not big, they are all magnificent. The jade Buddha inside is exquisitely carved, which is more distinctive and representative.
A pretty temple with hospitable abbot and monksI had visited this temple for many years since my mature adult days each time I was in Chiang Ma.The Abbot and monks speak english and makes a good effort to welcome and chat with visitors. It is a quiet temple off the busy road and a good place to sit and meditate if one wants to do so. It is also known as the Jade Buddha temple. I had witness the carving of the Jade Buddha statue at the temple in the earlier days by a craftsman.The murals on the walls are beautiful.A must visit if in Chiang Mai.Take a red taxi to Tapae Gate and get down at the Amorae Tapae Hotel and walk through the lane between the hotel and school.
The monks of the Jinsha Temple speak English and try to chat with visitors. It is a quiet temple, and when you go there you see a craftsman carving a jade Buddha in the temple. The temples in the ancient city of Chiang Mai are like cows. You can actually choose a few special ones.
The temple is rebuilt in the main courtyard but not destroyed by the visit. You will find an old wooden building that is used to store sacred words. The main hall has an unusual collection of jade, where you are invited to touch the rocks for the power of luck, and some small jade for sale, such as the elephant, starting at $10.
The temple near Tha Pae Gate is a long history, but it is not very old inside.
