Wat Phrathat Doi Saket is another beautiful Buddhist temple that is easy to see while you are traveling on an adventure around Chiang Mai, Thailand. Even though the temple appears to be new the original structures were built in 1112. It is a beautiful place to photograph and it is a lot quieter than many of the busier temples in the area. Like other temples in the area, the prominent feature of Wat Doi Saket temple is its golden Chedi.
How much does it cost to visit?
There’s no admission fee to visit the temple but donations are appreciated.

I made these images of the Buddist Temple with my Canon EOS 6D 20.2 MP DSLR Camera with a Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens handheld, set at 100 ISO, 24mm, f/9.0, 1/640 sec.
Very cool. Didn’t get that angle when I was there (it was also rather crowded).
Love how you captured the intricate details of the metal lacing. Wow!
