Chedi Luang Temple
Another important temple, Wat Chedi Luang was one of the first temples built in Chiang Mai and is home to the city pillar, which is thought to house Chiang Mai's guardian spirits and help protect the city. First built around 1400 when Chiang Mai was being settled, the temple has gone through many changes, but all have centred around the impressively large brick and stucco chedi. Though today the chedi stands at 42 m tall, it had a maximum height of 96 m back in 1481.
