Wat Chiang Man

One morning our friends watched Mara and Beckett so Chuck and I could explore the old city and visit some of the more famous wats.  One of these was Wat Chiang Man.

Wat Chiang Man was built in 1297 as the first temple of Chiang Mai.  The temple is famous for its Lanna-style chedi supported by rows of elephant-shaped buttresses and also for its two Buddhas: Phra Sae Tang Khamani (a miniature crystal image also known as the White Emerald Buddha) and the marble Phra Sila Buddha.

We didn’t spend too long here but it was nice to see and we ended up taking my mom here when she came to visit us.
