Wat Chedi Luang

Chiang Mai

Located on Phra Pokklao Road, this temple is the site of an enormous pagoda, originally 280 feet high, and which was partially destroyed by an earthquake in 1545. At one time, Wat Chedi Luang housed the revered Emerald Buddha image now enshrined in Bangkok’s Wat Phra Kaeo. One of the temple’s most striking architectural feature is a magnificent Naga (mythical serpent) staircase which adorns the chapel’s front porch.
