About Wat Chiang Man
Wat Chiang Man is Buddhist temple located within the old walled city of Chiang Mai. Wat Chiang Man is believed to be the oldest temple in Chiang Mai founded in 1297, 1 year after the city was established by King Mangrai. Wat Chiang Man is open every day from 06:00 to 17:00 and admission is free.
Wat Chiang Man has five main structures:
- Chedi: The oldest structure in the temple, known as Chedi Chang Lom. The gold covered spire is supported by large stone statues of elephants. According to local legend a hair of the Lord Buddha is enshrined within the structure. The chedi is also believed to have marked the spot where King Mangrai slept in temporary quarters whilst the city of Chiang Mai was being constructed.
- Main Prayer Hall: Large structure with a three tiered roof and gable ends decorated in gold relief.
- Second Prayer Hall: Smaller structure containing two very old Buddha statues with magical powers. The older of the two statues is believed to been created in either India or Sri Lanka during a period from the 8th to 10th Century.
- Ordination Hall: 19th Century building built to replace the original building dating back to 1297.
- Library: Traditional Lanna style wooden library on a high base to protect the religious books stored inside from floods, rats and insects.
