Free to visit. Amazing structure and details and the views are spectacular. We saw this place while visiting the Buddha. We went early in the morning and didn't encounter many tourists.

Two huge places to visit on one ground. The 23 storey high Guanyin statue was impressive. With only 40 Baht, you may take the lift to Guanyin’s forehead to enjoy the view. Since this place is a complex, you may walk over to a smaller...More

This is a little farther out of the city of Chiang Rai than the white or blue temples but definitely worth a trip. One of newest temples (open only 4 years approx) and built by a Monk on the land where he runs an orphanage....More

Hi, the elevator in the Shiva statue is open from 10am to 6pm. The Chinese temple next door a little longer. Entrance fee is 40 Bht for foreigners, locals pay half.
