Chiangmai Holy 9 Temple 8th Stop~~Wat Duang Dee

Wat Duang Dee is located on Phra Pok Klao Road. In the past this temple was called Wat Ton Mak Nue. The wiharn is designed in Lanna style.

The name of this temple means 'Good Luck' in Thai.

Wat Duang Dee dates back over 200 years. In 1761 the Chiang Mai Chronicle reported that a Monk from Wat Duang Dee became ruler of Chiang Mai at a time when it held its Independence for a short time before the Burmese returned to govern.

In 1819, the second ruling Prince of Chiang Mai, King Thammalangka had the Wat renovated and held a dedication ceremony.

Within its scripture hall there are, by all accounts beautiful gilded wood carvings.This temple displays a mixture of architectural styles that reflect the varied heritage of Northern Thailand.

Located at 228, Phra Pok Klao Road, Sriphum Sub-District
