Kind of creepy for me, but there is an elevator time rail to ride to the top which was helpful. You must remove shoes before going into the temple. I loved the view of the city from here.

Even if suffering from Temple Overload, its worth the trip. Very beautiful grounds and a great view of Chaing Mae, as this temple sits high on the mountainside. Buy prayers beads from the monks and recieve a blessing

The roads are really steep and the turns are really sharp. So be really careful when you ride/drive up. However, it was worth the timing going up. The place is amazing, clean and neat. You can see the whole city view which was breathtaking.
