Review of Wat Mahawan

Wat Mahawan
Ranked #52 of 290 things to do in Chiang Mai
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 January 2017 via mobile

This smaller temple is easy to walk past, but the grounds are very serene and the main hall worth a look. If you are making your way down Tha Phae road stop in.

The most striking thing of this temple is the degree of carving and detail of the door and gable-end of the temple. Worth a quick look, even if not always unlocked. There are now lots of commercial activities in the temple grounds (e.g., massage, coffee shop, tourist trinkets shops, etc.).

This temple has one of the more impressive chedi with square three layered base with bell shaped top half and gold pinnacle. Also interesting is the entrance to the viharn which together with the gable end is highly decorated. There is also a good library and many fine Buddha images in the courtyard. Unfortunately all the buildings were closed when visiting.

Only small, but very pretty. I didn't spend more than a few minutes strolling around and taking photos. Absolutely nobody else around, which was almost eerie. Well worth popping in if you're passing by.
