Planning a Trip? Ask Your Question
Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, also popular as simply Doi Suthep, is an ideal place to visit if you wish to seek spirituality during your trip to Chiang Mai. Located 25 km away from the main city and situated atop the Doi Suthep mountain amidst the dense forests of the Doi Suthep National Park, the holy shrine occupies a pious corner in the hearts of Thai people due to the history associated with it. Further, the stunning view of the Chaing Mai downtown region from the Doi Suthep temple makes it an ideal sightseeing destination to plan a visit to.
Another reason to visit the Doi Suthep temple in Chiang Mai is the unique and divine architecture of the place. Since the beginning of the staircase from near the Parking zone, one gets a glimpse of the Thai architectural marvels from the large Naga (Serpent) structures present along the staircase. By the time you reach to the top, a mouth–gaping view of Wat Phra That Doi Suthep will definitely make you fall for the beauty of the place.
