Chiang Mai, Thailand

Had a good week in Chiang Mai, here is a round up of the temples I visited.
Starting with Wat Sri Suphan, found by accident when I was at the saturday market.  The market is located just south of the old city in the traditional silver making district, which makes up the outside and inside of the ubusot (ordination hall) of the temple.  I went back at night to capture it:

Wat Lok Moli is just north of the old city and it dates back over 600 years:
The Wat Chiang Man is proabably the most famous of Chiang Mai's temples, having once housed the emerald buddha (which is now located in Bangkok).  In the grounds was this Stupa:
Finally here is the Thapae Gate, the focal point of the old city and eastern gate, it is where the walking street market starts from on a sunday.
