Nice old temple where you very rarely see any tourists. It's very quiet here. It makes a good shortcut from the Chiang Moi road to the Tha Pae road avoiding the traffic. It' has lots of atmosphere.

Wat Saen Fang seems not to be visited so much as the more illustrious Wat Bupharam nearby. The entrance is very unusual as it's guarded by a pair of the longest Naga (mythical sea creatures) in Chiang Mai (I've visited most) and maybe in Thailand....More

you need to enter the temple through an alley. the architecture and design is really well done. the intricate design on the wall is exceptional. the gold colour brings out the design. there are a few stupa inside the ground.

There is a long alley leading to the grounds lined with statues & wind chimes. Very peaceful, clean grounds & an ornate chedi.

This temple is a large temple with all of the usual features. It has a nice Burmese chedi and is a quiet space. It would not be top of my Chiang Mai list.

As we were walking past we saw the open gates and decided to have a look in. We saw no one around at all and all the buildings were locked so we could see only the outside of everything. Wouldn't go out of your way...More

A slightly different looking Wat but the only one in Chiang Mai that we found to be seemingly abandoned with no one around. Very peculiar indeed. Still interesting to look at and plenty others around !!

The temple is easy to miss. Almost opposite Wat Bupharam, there's a red gate on Tapae road. Inside is a lane lined by nagas on either side. The lane opens out into the Wat compound. The temple displays many Burmese details. The Burmese-style chedi is...More
