Nestled near the Doi Suthep mountain, Wat U Mong Thera Jan is a peaceful temple far from the city bustle. It is also called the Tunnel Temple due to its labyrinth network of tunnels set within the forest. It offers a wholesome experience of Buddhism, complete with ancient stone structures, Dhamma teachings, meditation sessions and prayer chants reverberating in the air.
A 13th-century landmark, Wat Umong Suan Phutthatham translates to a "temple of the tunnels and Buddha Dharma garden." These temple tunnels house Buddha shrines where visitors and devotees pray and pay their respects to the idol. The sounds of monks' chanting encompass the four walls underneath the temple ground. Since the location is amidst forest and natural lakes, this makes it a perfect spot to unwind your mind and go deep in meditation.
