Wat Chedi Luang

It is a historic temple that was built in 1441 around the tallest structurethe Lanna-style chedi of ancient Chiang Mai. This temple had an emerald Buddha which is now in Bangkok’s WatPhraKaew. To replace it, a jade replica has been put which was a gift from the Thai king to celebrate the 600th anniversary of the ancient chedi. Due to damage form an earthquake and cannon fire from King Taksin, restoration work has been conducted by UNESCO and the Japanese government. This work can be seen in the new doorways and mythical serpent’s (naga). There were new Buddha images installed in 3 out of the 4 directional niches. Another attraction of WatChediLuang is the lakmeuang which is a city pillar said to be the home of the house of a deity which guards the city. There is also a standing Buddha called Phra Chao Attarot sided by two of his disciples who are renowned for the mysticism and meditation.
