Reviews about Wat Phra That

Very beautiful! At first, I was really depressed when I climbed those hundreds of steps. I wondered if there would be no scenery after climbing the steps. Who knows that the tickets are immediately attracted by the palace towers which are stacked like high clouds. The more you walk in, the more surprising you feel! Especially when you take off your shoes and enter the inner temple, you will be poked into the eyes of the brilliant inner temple. The inner hall was full of people's voices and incense. Everyone in a local student group prayed and knelt down to pray for blessings. The atmosphere was sacred and elegant. I couldn't help but circle the temple three times again. I enjoyed it very much.

Shuanglong Temple is located in Sutie Mountain of Chiang Mai. Because of its peak season, it took part in a half-day trip. Thai guides bought tickets to explain the whole journey, which made the visit very easy and easy. Because Chiang Mai is a city of thousands of Buddhas, the number of large and small temples is not enough, and the obvious feature is that there are usually two Guardian dragons carved at the gate of the temple. A local tour guide sighed two sentences - "It's not clear why the Chinese call it Shuanglong Temple. We call it Sutie Temple in Chiang Mai. In fact, there are Shuanglong on the staircase wall of the main gate of most temples in Chiang Mai." After entering the gate of the temple, there is a big black clock, which is said to be given by China. On the other side, there is a white elephant statue, just for commemoration. The sacred white elephant was sculpted and erected as a monument. The story about it was inscribed on the monument - "Legend has it that it carried Buddha's Sari on its back more than 600 years ago. When it came to the place where Su Tie Temple is located today, it stopped and died after several rounds in situ to show Buddha's willingness to stay here for a long time. Later, the Lanna royal family built a pagoda at the white elephant's residence to support Sariko, which was the original shape of the original Su Tie Temple. Over the next hundred years, the stone steps up and down the hillside were slowly built. Even today, there are 306 staircases, and two dragons were carved from the top to the bottom on both sides. Each dragon's head is all seven Naga with color mosaics, which is very pleasing to the expression of the seven dragons. According to the guide, not all Shuanglong on the front steps of the temple can be carved with seven heads. Only the temple ordered by the king and the prince allows Naga to have seven dragon heads. When entering the atrium of the temple, there are corridors around it. There are many Buddha statues on each side of the corridor, and murals depicting religious stories on the wall of the corridor. In addition, the most striking is the golden spire of the Shriver Pagoda in the middle of the temple, the golden guard around the pagoda and the four golden canopies, all of which are covered with gold foil. In addition, there are golden Buddhas around the Shriver Pagoda. In addition, the dew on the top of the tower is also cast in gold. Everything you see is pure gold. In the dazzling sunshine, it appears golden shine, incomparably brilliant. Then the tour guide suggested that we could take part in the prayer in person, or with Thai believers, hold a rose or take a plastic page with a mantra translation, and read three circles around the Shriver Pagoda Hall to make a wish. We could understand some Thai Buddhist etiquette, and it was indeed a worthwhile trip.

Many travel agencies offer half-day tours to the scenic spots in Chiang Mai, which are Shuanglong Temple and Puping Palace in Su Tie Mountain. After the Chartered train arrived at Puping Palace, we returned along the original road to visit under the Shuanglong Temple. Su Tie Shan, also known as Shuanglong Temple, was built in 1383 during the Lana Dynasty. It is said that the location of the temple was determined by a white elephant. In the 14th century, the Sakyamuni Buddha's Sariko was discovered. At that time, people placed the Sariko on the back of the white elephant and allowed the white elephant to find a place to worship the Sariko. Finally, the white elephant landed on the Su Tie Mountain, which is the origin of the Shuanglong Temple. To get to the temple, you need to walk 300 steps the steep steps of Longbu or take the top cable car. The tickets are 30 baht and 50 baht respectively. Thai locals are free. Outside the temple there are rows of bells and small gardens for visitors to take photos. Shoes need to be taken off inside the temple, men, women and children need to wear long-sleeved trousers and skirts. All skirts and pants must exceed the knees to show respect for Buddha. This time, Xiaobian had to borrow a wrapped skirt for 20B and take off his shoes outside the temple. Entering the temple, the brilliant golden and blue sky in Chiang Mai, the sunshine was brilliant, almost blinking at a moment. Xiao Bian walked barefoot on the hot ground with the crowd. He was really drunk when he met an aunt who was full of enthusiasm and wanted to take pictures and blocked the way ahead. Buddhist monks and worshippers will circle around the Buddha with a lotus bud and incense in their hands. This is a solemn ceremony. It is a spiritual washing for believers to come here. Every day, there are a lot of tourists, many people will express in the donation box and leave their names on the donation book, less than 20B, more than 1000B. Thailand is a country where religious beliefs are flourishing. Being very kind and friendly to people is the first impression left to Xiaobian. Even if the language is not well communicated, it will help you very enthusiastically. Thank You, Thailand
