Location : Mueang District
Wat Chedi Luang (also known as Temple of the big stupa) is houses the largest chedi in Chiang Mai. The temple is located right in the middle of the city and was built in the reign of King Saen Mueang Mak, the seventh king of Mengrai Dynasty. The 98 metre tall and 54 metre wide chedi was built in the reign of King Tilokkarat. The construction was completed in 1481. In 1545 the chedi was collapsed due to an earthquake during the reign of King Jiraprapa. The chapel in the front was built by Chao Khun Uba Lee Poramacharn (Sirichantathera) and Chao Kaeo Navarat in 1928. The magnificent methodological serpents ramble from the entrance of the chapel to its door on both sides. It is believed that they are the most beautiful man-made serpents in the northern Thailand.

How to get there
To get to Wat Chedi Luang, head to Prapokklao Road which runs through the north to south centre line of the old city. It's easy to walk to this temple for those staying in the old part of town; alternatively, you can take a songtaews (red pick up) for a very minimal fee. Opening Hours Daily from 06:00 am. - 05:00 pm.​
