Wat Ku Tao
The Wat Ku Tao is located north of the city centre near Chiang Mai Stadium on Sanam Kila Road. The wat, which dates from 1613, is situated in a quiet and peaceful compound lined with several large trees.

The temple is best known for its unusual chedi, which is bulbous in shape and resembles a series of sphere shaped bowls piled on top of each other. The main structure is decorated with colourful porcelain chips and is thought to be 14th century, though its precise origins are actually unknown. Other theories suggest that it only dates from 1613 and the chedi represents five Buddhist monk alms bowls, which symbolise five Buddha images. The name 'Ku' (in Thai) means charnel ground and 'Tao' means a round pot shape - so the wat may have been built to house the ashes of Burmese royalty.
