Wat Chedi Luang in Chiang Mai
Wat Chedi Luang is the Temple of the Great Chedi, which dates back to the 14th Century. Construction on the chedi (a tower like structure) began in 1395 under the patronage of Lanna King Lanna King Saen Muang Ma as place to bury the ashes of his father. At the time Chiang Mai was the capital city of the Lanna Kingdom which was one of many Kingdom which used to exist in what is modern Thailand. The chedi was originally around 85 metres tall and because of the size of the chedi it took until 1470 to complete the construction. During the late 15th and early 16th Centuries this chedi was the most important religious monument in the Lanna Kingdom, with the famous Emerald Buddha placed in one of the niches in the centre of the chedi.
Unfortunately, the chedi was partially destroyed by an earthquake in 1545. The top section of the chedi collapsed and was never completely rebuilt. Wat Chedi Luang also features Chiang Mai’s City Pillar Shrine, several well preserved wooden temple buildings and an ornate modern prayer hall which houses an important 14th Century statue of the Lord Buddha, called the Phra Chao Attarot. Wat Chedi Luang is open every day from 06:00 to 18:00 and admission costs 40 THB for foreign visitors.
