Wat Chiang Man | Chiang Mai

On Mobile

Located within the old walled city on Ratchaphakhinal Road, this is Chiang Mai's oldest temple, and is believed to be built in the year 1296, when King Mengrai allegedly lived here while the new city of Chiang Mai was under construction.

The temple is noteworthy for its fine Chedi supported by rows of elephant buttresses and a beautiful chapel.

Enshrined within the temple are the ancient Buddha images of Phra Kaeo Khao, a tiny crystal statue thought to have the power to create rain, and Phra Sila Khao.
