About Wat Chedi Luang

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.
