Doi Suthep Temple in Chiang Mai
The following trip took us to Doi Suthep Temple in Chiang Mai. This is a rich complex of religious buildings. The temple is considerably large itself, with its holy relics, and was founded in the fourteenth century. It is considered the symbol of Thailand Lanna. Four golden parasols surround the central chedi decorated with filigree gold leaf which are placed there by pilgrims to the temple. It is a delight to walk among the faithful and feel some peace and tranquility that seems to emanate from the many images of Buddha.
