Wat Phra That Doi Suthep

While my mom was visiting, we finally made our way to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep or Doi Suthep as its usually called.  Its a Theravada Buddhist Temple that resides on the mountain of Doi Suthep and overlooks the city of Chiang Mai.

We opted to take the cable car up (and back down) as my knees hate stairs and it was only 20Baht extra for the cable car.

Walk the steps? Um. . .no!

It was the most impressive Wat I’ve been to so far.

We were blessed by a monk and sprinkled with Holy Water. We then each received a bracelet made from Holy Cotton. Here is the monk putting on Beckett's bracelet.
