Wat Doi Kham

In the coming period we will tell a little bit about the places we visit on our adventures. If you want to know more and see it with your own eyes, we recommend to join an adventure.

16) Wat Doi Kham

Wat Doi Kham is an attractive not much visited temple known for its 17 meters high Buddha image. The temple that was built towards the end of the 7th century sits on top of a forested hill just outside of Chiang Mai. The name of the Wat means golden mountain temple. The oldest structure of Wat Doi Kham is the chedi (pagoda), that was constructed in the year 687. It shares many characteristics with the chedi of the better known Wat Doi Suthep, that is found a little more to the North.

We don’t visit this temple, but we will be able to have nice views on it from different angles.
