Wat Chedi Luang in Chiang Mai

Wat Chedi Luang is the ‘Temple of the Great Stupa’ and it is located within the old walled city area of Chiang Mai. Construction of the large central chedi tower, also known as a stupa, began in 1395 and took until 1475 to complete. The chedi was originally over 80 metres tall and 50 metres wide until, however, an earthquake in 1545 caused the top part of the chedi to collapse. Since that time the chedi has only been partially rebuilt.

In the 15th and 16th Centuries the chedi was the most important religious site in Chiang Mai and Thailand’s most important Buddha statue, the Emerald Buddha, was kept inside one of the 4 niches above the base of the chedi from 1468 to 1551. The rest of Wat Chedi Luang was constructed some time after the chedi itself.

The modern day temple occupies a large site which used to be two separate temples and for this reason there is more than one ordination hall and more than one prayer hall, all of different designs built at different times. The main temple building was constructed in 1928 and houses a large 14th Century standing Buddha statue. Another curiosity at Wat Chedi Luang is that the temple hosts Chiang Mai’s city pillar shrine, which is a small ornate building near to the entrance to the temple which traditionally women are not allowed to enter.
