This is a small, but pretty temple near the river. Part of it is undergoing renovation, but most can still be visited. We stumbled onto it while walking near our hotel. It turns out this is one of the oldest temples in Chiang Mai

Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area. The Chedi is pretty & the grounds are nice. This Wat is very popular with the locals, it was very busy.

Pleasant riverside temple. Not on the normal tourist circuit, so usually very quiet. There is a mammoth tree just on the other side of wall from the temple grounds. You can't see the base, but the upper part is mind-blowingly huge!!
