Wat Chang Taem ~ Chiang Mai


The Wat Chang Taem temple in Chiang Mai, Thailand in HDR.

Inside the old city in Chiang Mai are many temples (wat) on every street. The most famous ones are Wat Phra Singh, Wat Chedi Luang and Wat Chiang Man (the oldest temple in Chiang Mai).

This is a shot of a temple located in the middle of the city, called Wat Chang Taem. It’s a small temple overshadowed by the huge Wat Chedi Luang complex a few steps south. We passed next to it on a beautiful sunny day with a perfect sky (blue and big fluffy white clouds). I couldn’t resist taking a photo.

Enjoy!
