Wat Chedi Luang

Located in the historic centre of Chiang Mai, this is one of Chiang Mai’s must-see temples. Wat Chedi Luang means literally “temple of the big stupa.” The construction of the temple started in the 14th century, and, probably due to stability problems, wasn’t completed until the 15th century. At the time of completion, the stupa stood over 82 m high and had a base diameter of 54 m, at that time the largest building of all Lanna. In 1468, the Emerald Buddha –the sacred, protective image of the Kingdom of Thailand -- was installed in the eastern niche. In However, in 1545 the upper 30 m of the structure collapsed after an earthquake, and shortly thereafter, in 1551, the Emerald Buddha was moved. Wat Chedi Luang offers chats with monks where you can exchange opinions and ask questions face to face.
