Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep
This famous and important temple dating from 1383 enjoys a prominent position in Chiang Mai, overlooking the city from its mountainside perch. It sits about 3,520 feet above sea level and is accessible via a steep naga staircase comprising around 300 steps. The temple has a huge golden chedi (spire), within which lie some holy Buddha relics that attract devotees from the world over. A walk around the grounds reveals a variety of colorful and fragrant flowers, and murals that depict Buddha's previous lives. Any visit to the city is incomplete without stopping by this temple.
The most beautiful and sacred temple containing a holy relic of the Lord Buddha, a panoramic view of the city can be seen from here at 3,500 feet above sea level. Then visit Meo Hilltribe village at DOI PUI
A mistic visit, blessing from a Monk, ringing bells, walking around the temple all gave on a feeling of being part of the Temple experience. The view from the top is wonderful and the walk, or ride up is most interesting. If a person visit's Chang Mi, the Temple is a must see.
GET READY FOR A WALK, LOTS OF STAIRS TO GET TO THE TOP. BEAUTIFUL VIEW FROM THE TOP ONCE YOU GET THERE. LOTS OF THINGS TO DO AND SEE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TEMPLE AND THE TOP. DEFINITELY WORTH SEEING, PUT IT ON YOUR LIST!!!!
This temple is Chiang Mai's most important and strikingly visible landmark, with an exquisite copper-plated chedi topped by a five-tiered gold umbrella-one of the holiest chedis in Thailand. The temple overlooks the city and is 3,520 feet above sea level, with only the distance of 15 kilometers from town. You need to approach the temple grounds on foot by climbing a steep staircase of around 290 steps or if you wish, there is a service of funicular railcar.
