All reviews forest temple feed the fish meditation centre tunnel system catfish peaceful place buddha images worth a visit tuk tuk favorite temple old city nice temple turtles caves trees meditate chedi
It's good to visit at anytime of the day, but I'd recommend the morning time when it's cooler , you could see monks' activities and walk around in nature among all the ancient temple architectures. Amazing!
At the end if the day, when you start to realize most temples look similar (it happens sometimes) this is the place to visit :) quiet, in forest, there is serenity there. Also, to avoid bombing some tunnels were made to protect monks... very surprising...More
My two daughters and I were very interested in Wat Umong which is situated in a type of forest and found it very peaceful and could quite understand people going there to meditate. The actual temple is inside a cave area which was very different...More

This temple is less known and visited, but it is one of the oldest and it is very suggestive, evocative. There is a cave like building with a Buddha inside, and a beautiful park with sacred trees, and a lake.
I just finished a 3.5-day retreat here. While the schedule appears intense, we were truly on our own most of the time (as contact time with the monk ~instructor was pretty limited--probably less than two hours/day). Participants are expected to meditate on their own during...More

Hi! You can send them an email (you can find it on internet), or if you are already at Chiang Mai you can go there to the meditation center office and ask them about information. Usually there is plenty of room and you can start the day you want (you can arrive and start straight) and stay as long as you want, usually no more 3-4 weeks, accommodation and meals are provided for a 220 bahts a day fee and you have to wear white clothes (you can buy or rent them there). I recommend you that place for a meditation retreat, for me it was great.
