Wat Phra That Doi Suthep temple in the evening

Wat Phra That Doi Suthep. In the late afternoon, there were fewer people, staying till after sunset to enjoy a quiet moment as the monks began their evening chanting. As soon as it gets dark, the huge spotlights turn the golden stupa and Buddha into shimmering hues of gold.

Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep temple in Chiang Mai

The most famous temple of tourist in Chiang Mai

Wat Phra That Doi Suthep is certainly one of the most important temples in Chiang Mai, as well as one of the most revered among all Thais. The temple is a major visit destinations during the important Buddhist holidays of Makha Buja and Visak. Its importance, as well as its location, owes much to the legend of its founding.Doi suthep temple was established in 1383 by King Keu Na one to enshrine a piece of bone said to be from the shoulder of the historical Buddha. The holy bone shard was brought to Lanna by a wandering monk from Sukhothai kingdom and it broke into two pieces at the base of the mountain, with one piece being enshrined at Wat Suan Dok. The second piece was on a sacred white elephant that wandered the jungle until it died, in the process selecting the spot where the temple was later founded.

The Nāga staircase at Wat Phra That Doi Suthep temple.

At Wat Phra That Doi Suthep temple, you can try to walk up Nāga stairs. The Nāga staircase is lined on both sides with a snake-like being, called Nāga. This has its origin in the myth of the Buddha. The Buddha had reached enlightenment and was meditating under a Bodhi tree when it started raining heavily. A snake-like mythical creature appeared. It sheltered the Buddha with its hood from the rain. This was a Nāga called Mucalinda. The Nāga is often portrayed with multiple heads.

Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep even has a kind of elevator. If you don’t need to walk.
