: Chiang Mai

Wat Chiang Man is reportedly the oldest temple in Chiang Mai and established by the city’s founder, King Mengrai, some 700 years ago. Although an important temple, it is relatively small and is not located on the main tourist routes. It is though impressive and warrants a visit if you have the time. There are a number of small buildings in the temple grounds each displaying typical Northern-style decoration comprising gold leaf on red lacquer and colored mirrors. The temple houses some important Buddha images – one made of marble which came from Sri Lanka 2,000 years ago and another from Lopburi which is made of crystal and said to be 1,800 years old.

Details: The temple is open 09:00 to 17:00 and admission is free.

How to get there: Wat Chiang Man is in the old city by Chang Puak gate. It is located on the intersection of Ratchaphakhinai Road and Sri Phum Road.
