Wat Phra Puttabat Si Roi - Chiang Mai

We visited the temple Wat Phra Si Puttabat Roi in Chiang Mai today, and we want to record this without much text. The coordinates of the temple, and a map can be found at the bottom of the page.

The group of temples is situated on a hill, about 50 km from the city center of Chiang Mai. In one of the temples is a footprint of Lord Buddha's visit, as well as countless Buddha statues that were donated by the faithful.

On the way from the "old" temple to the newest, there is lot to see. The golden aspect of the Temple outshines most of its surroundings.

From inside, as well as from outside: the temple shines in gold (colour). The Luk Nimit-stones that are hung from the walls and entrances are already largely covered with gold leaf and decorated with donated money. This temple will be inaugurated in the near future and will certainly become a more popular destination than it used to be.

The main stone is located in the centre of the temple, and it should be easy to recognize it as it is labelled with the number "1". It claims to predict a lot of good karma for the future.

You can find more information about the Luk Nimit-stones in our report on the dedication of the temple in central Thailand .
