Wat Chedi Liam Chiang Mai

The Chedi At Wat Chedi Liem

Wat Chedi Liam (1298)
  • The most interesting feature of this wat is the chedi. It was built around 1288 by King Mangrai who actually copied the Mon style chedi at Wat Ku Kut.
  • It is square in design, with five tiers rising to a pyramid shape. Buddha images stand in the niches on each tier, each tier having a different pose of Buddha.
  • The chedi was restored in 1908 with additions of a Burmese spire and Burmese chinthe on its four corners.

Wiang Kum Kam (the former capital city of King Mangrai) (1288)
  • King Mangrai founded this settlement around 1286-1288, making it the capital until he moved to Chiang Mai in 1296.
  • He fortified it and enclosed it with a moat by diverting the flow of the Ping River. Subject to constant flooding, the site was buried under mud when the river changed during the Burmese reign.
  • Restoration of the area began in 1980, and it is now a historical park. The Wat Kan Thom lies in the centre with a Lan Na style chedi and new viharn built in 1987.
