Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep

Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai

The quintessential image of Chiang Mai with its large gilded chedi, Doi Suthep is a significant part of Chiang Mai’s cityscape and a religious symbol heavily embedded in Thai culture. 

Built in the 1380s during the Lanna Thai period, old legends tell the story of how an elephant was chosen to scour the countryside, and when it reached the current temple site, it trumpeted, circled three times, knelt on the ground, and died. This was taken as a sign, and thus the temple was built.

One of Thailand’s famous temples, Doi Suthep has an impressive view overlooking the city from its spectacular mountain location
