Chedi Leam temple or Ku Kam temple 's one temple in Wieng Kum Kam ancient city.At first built,this chedi was a step chedi in the same style as Kukut chedi in Lamphun. This Chedi 've been renovated by Burmese after Chiang Mai empire. So it's the mixed style between Lanna and Burmese style. On the time ,I arrived there was a local market in the temple ground.It was so fun to see people lifestyle in this temple.
Located in the street that runs up the side of Wat Lok Molee Temple are a lot of wood carvings. These are beautifully done, and are in an open area, just outside the side entrance of the Wat.
Wat Lok Molee Temple is located in Mani Noppharat road, and this are in the side road.
Spend some time walking if you can in Chiang Mai.
One area I found that had some really nice Temples was along Thanon Si Phum and across the moat on the other side located on Thanon Mani Nopharat.
Located on Thanon Si phum there was......
A new Temple "Morn Thean Temple" which is quite impressive, and they are still building the new Golden Buddha.
Next to this Wat is Wat Khuan Kha Ma. A little further along, is a glittering fence, then another Temple with Horses.
Located on Thanon Mani Nopharat is.......
Wat Lok Molee, Wat Chiang Yuen & Wat Pa Pao (has chedi, flag tower & Burmese styled altar)
There are some very nice ones amongst these.
This Temple was built in 1856 AD.in the reign of King Kawilorot Suriyawong of Chiang Mai . Nowaday this temple stands as an example of Lanna architecture with full composition. The important buildings are : Viharn in Chiang Mai style.Inside decorated with gold gilded and paingting ,the gallery or Sala Baat surrounded the viharn on 3 sides except front area and the 4 porched pavilion is an open wood structure represented as local construction.
No evidence on history about this small temple. But there 're 2 evidences on Lanna building here. The first one is Chedi which decorated with gold plates .The style of this chedi looks like Chedi Phra That Doi Suthep on Suthep Mountain. Another one is Temple gate which remains with some beautiful decorated stuccos.
Bhubing Palace is the Royal winter residence and also the Royal guesthouse for State visitors from overseas.
The palace was built in 1961.
There are so many beautiful buildings and they are all constructed differently.
Some examples are the log cabin called Ruen Peek which is the seasonal residence of HRH Princess Chulabhorn.
Phra Tamnak Payak Sathit, the log cabin which was built with eucalyptus wood for HRH Crown Prince Vajiralongkorn.
The Suan Suwaree Rose Garden would have to be the most beautiful and biggest rose garden I have ever seen and was constructed under instruction from the Queen.
The garden was planted in 1999 to commemorate the late Lady in Waiting Thanpuying Suwaree Taepakam.
Even the water reservoir is beautiful with colored lights, musical fountains etc.
Hire a golf cart and guide as the Palace grounds are huge and to far to walk around. They are very strict on the dress code. Knees, shoulders etc must be covered for both men and women. Clothing is available for hire at the entrance.
Palace entry 50baht each
300baht for golf cart & guide
10baht to hire clothes
Just outside the Palace is a small shopping area and it’s pretty cheap, I bought 2 nice winter jackets here, one which is reversible for 600baht for the both.
Bhubing Palace is not far past Doi Sutep, just continue up the mountain. It is definitely worth a visit, I actually enjoyed it more than Doi Sutep.
