Wat Jed Yod tells a surprising history, but reading the story of the wat is most impressive aspect of the visit. The chedis and wats themselves are not well maintained, but the lack of tourists makes this a more peaceful site

An impressive well set up temple and grounds, easily explained in the signs that have been set up. We visited early morning and the monks were watering the grounds and setting things up for the day. Peaceful, pleasant and impressive buildings. Unfortunately there are dogs in one section and they showed some signs to tell us to keep away from... More

This temple is a Royal Thai Temple. It is old and beautiful temple in Chaingmai. It is not so big temple but it is worth to visit.

My favorite wat in Chiang Mai. Very ancient and very similar to the sites in where Buddha meditated.

If you like being in Thai temples with Thai people making their devotions and not overwhelmed by people taking photographs this is an attractive temple to visit. I has some fine friezes. However it isn't particularly accessible if you prefer to spend your time in the centre of the city.

Wat Jed Yod is located in peaceful garden like grounds. Built in 1453 it is named for its seven spires. There are some attractive relief carvings and several chedis or stupas in the grounds. Somewhat off the tourist path, this is well worth a visit if you like the peace and spirituality of Buddhist temples.

Worth walking the grounds, find the cemetery and notice the way the people are commemorated. Also worth noting is the preservation and demise of the old

Wat Jed Yod is a standout among the countless temples in the Chiang Mai area - the trees and other foliage deepens an already peaceful and tranquil setting. It's a place where you can simply be with your thoughts.

Established in 1455 CE, and purposely built in imitation of the style of the Mahabodhi Hall in Bodhgaya, India, where Lord Buddha became enlightened. This is a royal temple, housing the ashes of King Tilokarat, who convened the eighth Buddhist Council here in 1477 CE, the first such council held in Thailand. The wat is still active and is a...
