Fodor's Expert Review Wat Chiang Man

The Old City Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Chiang Mai's oldest monastery, dating from 1296, is typical of northern Thai architecture. It has massive teak pillars inside the bot, and two important images of the Buddha sit in the small building to the right of the main viharn. The Buddha images are supposedly on view only on Sunday, but sometimes the door is unlocked.
