Wat Phra That Doi Suthep

The golden spire of Wat Phra That Doi Suthep glitters near the summit of Doi Suthep, a 1,676 meter (5,500 foot) mountain outside Chiang Mai. The wat was established in 1383, and is one of northern Thailand's most sacred temples.

Gold and copper catch the sunlight, including a five-tiered gold umbrella that's one of the holiest sites in Thailand.

The International Buddhist Center at the wat hosts informal discussions, chanting and meditation.

While you’re here, enjoy the cooler mountain climate and explore the park’s forest, orchids and wildlife.

Practical Info

Wat Phra That Doi Suthep is in Doi Suthep-Pui National Park, 16 kilometers (10 miles) west of Chiang Mai. A tram takes you to the summit and the wat, or you can trek along the winding road and climb the set of 306 steps.

Take an organized tour to get here, or jump in a minibus taxi from Chiang Mai.
