it is a very beautiful design and architecture. the roof is exceptionally done with layers. inside the compound it is quiet and peaceful. no doubt there are many temples in chiangmai but all the designs are different.

Very peaceful & clean grounds, the Monks were busy painting & cleaning. A lot of silver accents & there was a man on the grounds making silver pieces, possibly to replace some. Worth a look if you're in the area.

Only small, but very pretty. I didn't spend more than a few minutes strolling around and taking photos. Absolutely nobody else around, which was almost eerie. Well worth popping in if you're passing by.
