Wat Chedi Luang Chiang Mai

Today Chiang Mai temple visited Wat Chedi Luang. Selective pick photo work during the visit.
It is the largest temple, the size of ancient ruins is really impressive. Rank number 1 religious sites, architectural buildings, sights and landmarks in Chiang Mai. The current temple grounds were originally made up of three temples — Wat Chedi Luang, Wat Ho Tham and Wat Sukmin.
An historic and venerable temple, Wat Chedi Luang is built around a crumbling Lanna-style chedi (built in 1441) that was one of the tallest structures in ancient Chiang Mai.
The famed Phra Kaew (Emerald Buddha), now held in Bangkok’s Wat Phra Kaew, resided in the eastern niche in 1475. Today there is a jade replica, given as a gift from the Thai king in 1995 to celebrate the 600th anniversary of the chedi and the 700th anniversary of the city.
