Wat Lok Molee Temple – Chiang Mai Thailand

Wat Lok Molee Temple – Chiang Mai Thailand

ust outside the old walled city center of Chiang Mai, the Wat Lok Molee is of the city’s oldest temples.
Although the exact founding date of the temple is not known, it is likely that the first structures were built during the 14th century.
 
The temple was probably a Royal Wat, since the Kings of the Mengrai dynasty maintained the temple.
King Kuena who ruled Lanna during the second half of the 14th century is said to have invited a number of monks from present day Myanmar to Chiang Mai to spread the teachings of the Buddha. During their stay in Chiang Mai the monks lived in the Wat Lok Molee temple.
 
There is lots to see at Wat Lok Molee, including interesting statues, Buddha images, elephants and it is a good place for photos 🙂
