Photographer's Note

Staying on with Wat Chedi Luang. Also known as Maha Chedi Luang, this castle-like structure is recognised as one of the greatest pagodas of Chiang Mai. The wat was started in the 14th century and reflects the early Lanna style architecture of the period as well as many other styles that have shaped the structure as it has been adapted and developed over the centuries.

The viharn near the temple’s entrance was built in 1928. Round columns with bell shaped bases and lotus finials support the high red ceiling inside.

The standing Buddha image inside is known as the Phra Chao Attarot or “Eighteen-cubit Buddha”. Phra Chao Attarot is flanked by two disciples both renowned for meditation and mysticism. Made of a combination of brass alloy and mortar, the images dates back to King Saen Muang Ma (1385-1401).
