Another one of the many temples scattered in this land, if you are walking past it is worth a look see, if you have to make a special trip, you have probably already seen many simaler temples, it is a pleasant temple.

If you are looking for a truly spiratual experience in Chiang Mai ,Monk Neang at Wat Mahawan is trained to do Satyant blessed tattoos for lay people. I met Neang last year and he has done some pieces for me which were professional ( he uses only machine needles which provide a cleaner, crisper , longer lasting tattoo in my opinion vs. bamboo) and is very holy in his approach to the work. The fee you pay him, a bargain really, helps to maintain the wat and to provide Neang with some resources for his daily and health care needs.
I have many, many tattoo pieces done all over the world and can say without hesitation that the ones I obtained from Neang are of the highest standards both hygenicly and professionally.
I feel blessed that I have had the privalege of being Inked by this lovely person.

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.).
