43 Front Gate Detail at Wat Chai Mongkol in Chiang Mai, Thailand

Most Buddhist temples in Chaing Mai are located within the old city walls while other notable ones are west of town. But Wat Chai Mongkol – some sources call it Wat Chai Mongkhon – was built along the banks of the Mae Ping River during the 15th century. When you walk beneath this ornate front gate, you will find a small, tranquil temple that is home to only a handful of monks and rarely visited by tourists. It is delightful!
