Wat Suan Dok, a Royal Temple of the Third Class, remains popular for its stunning architectural beauty and Buddhist university. Photographers flock here, especially at sunset, for fantastic shots of the chedis, or spires, decorated with Buddhas and white mausoleums holding the ashes of the royal family of Chiang Mai. Don't miss the 500-year-old bronze Buddha in the back of the facility. Ask about open times to meet and chat with the monks, who are eager to practice their English with visitors. With our custom trip planner, Chiang Mai attractions like Wat Suan Dok can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
