Wat Phra Kaew Don Tao


From 1436 to 1468, this wát was among four in northern Thailand to previously house the Emerald Buddha (now in Bangkok’s Wat Phra Kaew). The main chedi shows Hariphunchai influence, while the adjacent mon·dòp (the small square, spired building in a wat) was built in 1909. The mon.dòp, decorated with glass mosaic in typical Burmese style, contains a Mandalay-style Buddha image. A display of Lanna artefacts (mostly religious paraphernalia and woodwork) can be viewed in the wát’s Lanna Museum .

Adjacent to the temple complex, pretty Wat Suchadaram dates back to 1809 and is named after Mae Suchada, the central figure in a local legend.
