Wat Palad Temple is the best place for matidation.

The temple is a magnificent sanctuary of tranquility in the heart of the forest, set in a garden with gorgeous statues, little embellishments, and even a small waterfall (dried in hot season). 

Because it is surrounded by nature, Wat Palad is recognized as a meditation temple. The temple is surrounded by vegetation, giving it an antique Indiana Jones atmosphere. Along with the beautiful rock formations that go down the mountain, there is also the soothing sound of rushing water pouring between the gaps. It’s a nice location to sit and unwind, read a book, and be alone with your thoughts. I now see why the temple’s primary goal was meditation.

Pa Lad Temple is a stunning structure. The wonderful green landscape will greet you as soon as you arrive. There are trees, streams, mountains, and grass, among other things. The terrain looks to be rather steep hills. As a result, if you stand at certain locations, you will be able to glimpse the magnificent beauty of Chiang Mai’s city from afar.

Pa Lad Temple in Chiang Mai is a magnificent woodland monastery.

Pa Lad Temple is in Chiang Mai’s Suthep District, Muang County. It’s one of three forest monasteries in the Doi Suthep-Pui National Park. Pa Lad Temple is an ancient temple that dates back over 500 years. According to legend, it was constructed during the reign of Phaya Kue Na.

Even the monastery was abandoned at one point, but it was again repaired. It is now open to visitors who go touring or practice Buddhism.

You might be wondering where the name ‘Pa Lad’ comes from. Long ago, it was said that the monastery was once known as ‘Pa Lerd.’ The name was changed to ‘Pa Lad’ after the waterfall’s name.

The monastery’s architecture is not beautiful since it is old, and Pa Lad Temple is not a regular monastery. Everything, however, is valuable. They may not appear to be outstanding, yet they are fantastic and unforgettable.
