Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep @ Chiang Mai, Thailand (Jan '03)

First first ever trip to Chiang Mai, Thailand. After touching down the airport, we were checked in to the hotel and brought to the lovely Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep. The temple was famous for its Buddha's relic.

Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep (Thai: วัดพระธาตุดอยสุเทพ) is a Buddhist temple in Chiang Mai Province, Thailand. The temple is often referred to as "Doi Suthep" although this is actually the name of the mountain it is located on. The temple is located 15 km from the city of Chiang Mai and is a sacred site to many Thai people. From the temple impressive views of Chiang Mai can be seen and it remains a popular destination of foreign visitors.- Wikipedia

Inside the temple... It was a pity that I took such least pictures at that time. The place was amazingly beautiful.
