This pagoda is on a hill called "Doi Tung" which is a historical area. The pagoda was believed built almost 2000 years ago just after the death of the Lord Bhudda.

Twin Golden Pagodas are really beautiful, though they are not so big. If you have extra time after visiting Mae Fah Luang Garden and The Royal Villa at Doi Tung, Chiang Rai, then you can enjoy this temple (about 12 Km from the Garden). No entrance fees.

Interesting drive up the mountain to reach this Temple, there are stairs to walk up if you are so inclined. When you reach the top there are many Buddhas to inspect and there is a long bridge which has so many bells attached so that you can ring them along your way. A very peaceful place to visit. The Temple... More

The temple is very beautiful, small and holy. you are able visit the temple by 2 ways. 1) drive your car, drop at Naga staircase and walk to the temple 2) drive your car to the temple directly without stepping up. Please respect this holy temple with appropriate dress, no tank top, no short.

This was at the edge of the town on the top of a hill.We hire a Song Thaew from the town center for 100 bahts for round trip.The Chedi was the same ages as Chiang Rai.It was nothing special compare to Doi Suthep in Chiang Mai.There is a Big Gong in this Chedi.

A moderate walk up to the top of a hill on the edge of the city. Worth the climb due to the views. A nice temple can be found at the top with food available also.

One of the oldest temples at the top of the mountains in northern thailand. Definitely a must see if you want to see ancient monuments. There is a path of ancient bells and many gold buudah statues

At the edge of town so easy to get to. We rode bicycles. A moderate hill climb to the top. Some odd interesting little elephant shrines on the way up and around. Great view spot of the countryside. Unusual outdoor shrine like park as well. Not the top Wat but worth it as so closeby.

Thank getgs
