This didn’t look like too much from the outside but it is actually a large complex. The temple is lovely and red and behind it is a pretty white and gold monument. Definitely take some time to explore the grounds!

We came across Wat Klang Wiang by walking around Chiang Rai. It was empty, apart from a monk and a woman praying so we had ample of time to explore it. A lot of different ornamentation on the buildings and an excellent example of Lanna...More

Striking architecture, ornate decorations, spectacular temple complex built in true Lanna style. Built in 1432, this temple has ornate grill work on its red facades, not a normal colour for temples, located not far from the Clock Tower, a beautiful place to visit

Nice temple, peaceful surrounding and quiet area, although the area can get quite busy at certain times because of an adjacent school.

It's a nice temple. But still an average temple that you can find many in this and other Thai cities. But if you are in the area it's worth spending a few minutes here.
