Phra That Doi Suthep – Ranked among the 10 Most Spectacular Golden Pagodas around the World

Perhaps the most famous and important temple in Chiang Mai every visitor must pay a visit.

On top of Doi Suthep Hill, at 3,520 feet above sea level, finds the revered golden Phra That (pagoda) of Wat Phra That Doi Suthep rises against the sunlight. It was ranked among the 10 most spectacular golden pagodas around the world by the Huffington Post.

The temple was built in 1383 to enshrine Buddha’s relics. You can actually drive uphill to the higher

platform but a lot of  devout Buddhists choose to pilgrim by walking 290 steps up to the hilltop. After praying the Phra That for good lucks, don not forget to proceed to the terrace to soak up panoramic views of Chiang Mai town and surrounding countrysides. One of the best Thailand scenic view!
