About Wat Phra That Doi Suthep In Chiang Mai

Located on the western outskirts of Chiang Mai, Suthep is a district in itself. And, the magnificent temple, called Wat Phra That Doi Suthep nestled on its summit is one of the most sacred temples of the region. It is believed that your tour to Chiang Mai is never complete if you escaped a visit to this temple. Owing to its prime location up the Doi Suthep mountain and its incredible architecture, this attraction is completely beguiling! Fringed with seven-headed serpents along the 309 stairs, this temple provides a spellbinding view once you get to its terrace. Head towards this temple if you are seeking tranquility and spirituality, and have a mesmerizing experience.

History of Wat Phra That Doi Suthep

Established to enshrine a bone piece from the shoulder of the Buddha, Wat Phra That Doi Suthep Temple, Chiang Mai was built in the 19th century by King Keu Naone. The construction of the temples started in 1386, and it is believed that the bone was mounted on a sacred white elephant who climbed the mountain of Doi Suthep, and stopped near the summit. The temple was then founded at the place where the elephant trumpeted three times, laid down and passed away later.

Architecture of Wat Phra Doi Suthep

Decked with stunning idols at every corner, the marvelous architecture of the temple couple with majestic views of the city of Chiang Mai is meant to leave you in awe. With its bright colored gilded roofs, the structure looks even more fascinating. Comprising splendid statues, pagodas, pavilions, and wiharns, this attraction also houses a museum where you can find the old pieces of temple wares, ancient relics, and pictures. While the pavilions consist of living quarters for monks, a souvenir shop, a prayer hall, and a shop where you can enjoy snacks.

Attractions of Wat Phra Doi Suthep

The stunning architecture of Wat Phra Doi Suthep is an attraction in itself. However, besides that there are plenty of other attractions that you may take a tour of.

Chiang Mai Zoo: Explore the Chiang Mai Zoo for the love of wildlife. Housing Giraffes, Koala Bear, and other species, this place offers you a chance to cherish some relaxing moments, and have a unique experience. If you are not afraid of going close to animals, then you may try feeding Giraffes and cuddling Koala Bear.

Huay Kaew Waterfall: A great area to enjoy a picnic with loved ones, Huay Kaew Waterfall can be reached while strolling through the lush green Doi Suthep Park. Choose to spend some time here, and cherish the ultimate tranquility it offers.

Chiang Mai Viewpoint: If you want to experience the panoramic view of the city of Chiang Mai, then this is the best place to be at. Though, Doi Suthep Temple also offers quite a decent view, but the crowd might just not let you indulge in it completely. However, a visit to Chiang Mai Viewpoint lets you snap some picturesque views that can be cherished for years.

    Dont ever be fooled by his sincere approach before you book and make final payment. The ground local team of Thailand.Really kind and good in their approach.
