About Wat Chedi Luang
Wat Chedi Luang Temple, also known as Chaliluan Temple, is located at the southern end of Chiang Mai’s Old Market Street (Phrapokklao Road) and was founded in 1411. Inside the temple is a magnificent quadrangular stupa, built in the early 15th century and added to several times since, reaching a height of 85.4 meters and said to be able to see for thousands of miles.
In 1545, a major earthquake and windstorm struck Chiang Mai and the spire of the pagoda collapsed overnight, revealing the golden statue of Buddha inside.
