Our guide told us that the square chedi is the only one in northern Thailand. It is very elegant with 60 well maintained statues. The temple ground is serene with flowers in full bloom. Inside the vhan, the mural paintings tell the story of the queen, mother of the King of Lamphun and King of Lampang. A temple which worths a good visit.

Wat Kukut is part of the Wat Chamthewi Temple. It's probably the oldest building in the compound. The chedi is unique as there are many statues standing in the many rows of alcoves.

Truly a quiet wat to visit.

Not many tourists venture here- making it a gem of an off the beaten path must-see temple. Our driver-guide Sart drove around 1.30min outside of Chiang Mai. The unique stuppa -built 1235- is surrounded by 60+ Buddas and was a great diversion from the typical ones we visited all week. We really loved Ku Kut.

Lamphun is famous for its unique Mon-style stupas. This temple, actually called Wat Cham Ma Taevee, has the famed Chedi Kukut. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. There is also another smaller chedi that is of interest too.

A fantastic site with two ancient monuments. It appears that not many tourists venture to Lamphun but if you are into ancient ruins and in Chiang Mai then this should be on your itinerary. I visited around 11 am and I was the only tourist. My stroll around the temples and grounds was serene. I stayed for around 45 minutes relaxing. When you visit you will know why. My highlight of Chiang Mai.

It is located around 10-12 minutes walk from the museum. When you get to the old city gate within a minute of walking the peak is visible in the distance. Also, it has multiple names, Chamthewi being one.
