Overview : 

You’ll see some of the most famous temples, including the Temple of unique architecture.The Chiang Mai city is defined by a 720 year old moat, sits in the shadow of a monastery built in the 14th century and is dotted with temples raised by kings in centuries long past. In ancient times kings built temples (called wat in Thai) to demonstrate not only their devotion, but also their wealth and power. Temples served not only as centres of faith, but also as schools. Today, temples are still a central part of Thai life and the holy structures of Chiang Mai are living, breathing places that serve as invaluable bridges to the past, keeping the people linked to the timeless traditions of their ancestors. Most of Chiang Mai’s Buddhist temples are there to serve Buddhist and the community, so you’ll be expected to wear modest clothing and be quiet. Nearly all Buddhist temples in Chiang Mai are free or ask for a donation.

One of the main buildings houses (Viharn Lai Kam) very nice murals. and is quite beautiful, the real attraction of this temple is the smaller Lai Kam worship hall behind it. This small building is a wonderful sample Lanna (northern) architecture, especially the signature roof design, which is meant to represent a bird’s wings. The interior artwork has recently been restored, allowing visitors an excellent view into the lives of Chiang Mai’s people hundreds of years ago.
