Temples aren’t my thing to be honest but since I was in Chiang Mai, temple was a must! Went here because this was one of the famous temples in Chiang Mai. You need to pay around 20 bath and for girls, don’t wear shorts/short skirts and tank tops. Because you may need to “rent” a scarf and pay extra bit of money. There were Monk wax statues inside the temples. They looked so real. At first, i thought they were real Monks. That made this temple my favorite one.
