Wat Bupparam

I had cycled past Wat Bupparam before and it was the many animal statutes in the garden that had caught my eye and made me want to visit.

Chedi Luang

I discovered another favourite temple by accident. I was cycling along the back streets and saw tourists walking up a side street. Curiosity got the better of me so I followed along to see what they were up to. At the end of the street was the stunning Chedi Luang; the largest temple in Chiang Mai.

It was fantastic and very different to the other temples I’d seen. It reminded me of pictures I’d seen of Aztec temples.

 

I love how the elephant is standing watch

 

 

 

 

 

The bamboo scaffolding is making the monks a little nervous

The structure had been damaged in an earthquake earlier this year. I do hope they can find some way to repair it.
