This temple is recommended to visit in Chiang Mai. You can walk along the tunnel in temple and see Buddha statues. It is really good for one who would like to practice meditation as well. It is very calm and peaceful temple.

Being on the outskirts of the forest, this place is quite different from the other temples in the city. Beautiful surroundings and many interesting statues and things to watch. Far away though.

I really enjoy this peaceful temple. This is a great place to learn about meditation due to the quiet surrounding. Lots of great photo opportunity as well. A must visit if you are near the area.

It probably isn't the most eyes catching temple to visit but it is surely among the most charming and mysterious one. Walking along the park brings peace and harmony to our usually busy and troubled souls. A must view on a long nice day.

Not really - wheelchair access is not really a priority in Thailand. Very view locations/wats facilitate wheelchairs. You can get into the complex, but not inside temples/buildings

Hi! You can send them an email (you can find it on internet), or if you are already at Chiang Mai you can go there to the meditation center office and ask them about information. Usually there is plenty of room and you can... More
