Admire the traditional design and reverential atmosphere at Wat Chedi Luang Worawihan, a Buddhist temple located in Chiang Mai's historical center. King Saen Muang Ma initiated construction in the 14th century, intending to bury his father's ashes here. The project wasn't completed until the mid 15th century, and since then the temple has been rebuilt, refurbished, and redesigned on numerous occasions. Originally three separate temple areas, the sites were joined up to create the place of worship you see today, making it an area of impressive scale as well as architecture. Visit the grounds to discover its interesting and volatile history; look for the replica of the famous Emerald Buddha once housed here and the city pillar surrounded by three dipterocarp trees.

柴迪隆寺是清邁古城區內我覺得最值得去參觀的一個景點，清邁的寺廟眾多，多是金碧輝煌，在寺廟後方有一個500多年的古跡遺址，聽説裡面是放了蘭納國王的棺木。 more »Chai Dilong Temple is the ancient city of Qingyu I deserve the most worthy of a scene, the Temple of Qingdynast, many, many are Jin Bihuang, in the back of the temple there is a 500-year-old ancient site, the side is the coffin of the king of the country.
Today we went to all the temple's in Chiang Mai. In one word just beautiful but you've to see them for your self. The best one was for sure Wat Chedi Luang. Only at this you've to pay 40 bath entry fee when most of them are free. Still worth it though. In some of temple's women are not allowed to go inside like in the Silver temple but still you can watch from the outside. The surroundings are also very beautiful.
Just beautiful! Entrance fee 40 Bath for adults - fair price. Best time to visit is in the early hours of the evening. 4:30 pm to 6:30pm Enjoy :-)
