This is a temple that is rich in history. There is the Inthakhin Pillar Vihara temple which unfortunately only men are allowed to enter (ladies are not allowed to enter because they believe the women's menstruation affects the sanctity of the temple) but it was not a big turn off as there are a lot of other things to see. What some people would miss while looking at the blingy Buddha statues are the relics left of the high ranking monks.
This is the oldest temple in Chiang Mai, Thailand where it is called the ancient city of Thailand. Built in 14th century or around 600 years ago. Now it is just a ruin, and people built a temple beside it which is called wad udon temple. A very precious place for Thailand indeed. #wintergetaway
Chedi Long Temple, also known as the Great Buddhist Pagoda Temple, is the most noble temple in Chiang Mai with the Pasin Temple. The tall Lanna style stupa built in the temple was built in 1441 and was destroyed by an earthquake in the 16th century, but it is still the most magnificent building in Chiang Mai.

The Wat Chedi Luang, also known as Chedi Dragon Temple, is a particularly famous temple in the city of Chiang Mai. It is located in the heart of the ancient city of Chiang Mai.
This square shaped Lanna style sacred stupa was built in 1411 and is nearly 80 meters high. A major earthquake once happened in Chiang Mai, and the spire of the stupa collapsed overnight. After the rebuilding of the stupa, the apex could not be completed because no one knew its original appearance. The stupa has four sides, only one side has steps, and the other three sides have been restored into slopes. The stupa is engraved with exquisite guardian spirit snakes on all sides, and there are six elephant sculptures on the tower. The building is magnificent. But the atmosphere is very natural and leisurely.
