Wat Pantao, Chiang Mai


Thailand is a Buddhist Kingdom. There are more than a hundred temples, or wats, in Chiang Mai alone. One of them is Wat Pantao.

Wat Pantao is not as famous as other some other temples in Chiang Mai, such as Wat Phra Singh or Wat Prathat Doi Suthep, but I was fascinated by its wooden architecture.

The main hall of Wat Pantao. Note the wooden wall and poles…


Banners…


Lanterns…


Monks’ bowls…


Thais are overwhelmingly Buddhist, but they also worship spirits. Shown below is a spirit house within Wat Pantao…
