It is an old temple in Chiang Mai. Built during the reign of Phaya Saen Mueang, 7th King of the Mangrai Dynasty, to dedicate merit to Phaya Kue Na but not finished building Later, Queen Tilok Jutha Ratchathewi, Queen of Phaya Mueang Ma The construction continued until it was completed during the reign of Phaya Sam Fang Kaen. Later, during the reign of King Muang Kaew, in 1503 B.E. And brought the Emerald Buddha down to be glorified, and in the year 1545, during the reign of Queen Maha Thewi Jiraprapha, There was a great earthquake Causing the top of the Phra Chedi Luang to collapse only half left but still maintains its beauty.
Wat Chedi Luang Worawihan is considered an essential sanctuary and antique of Chiang Mai. There are many exciting things such as Phra Wihan Luang, a beautiful applied Lanna architecture, and Chedi Luang stupa, which is an old pagoda over 600 years old, the tallest in Lanna and Thailand, Wihan Sao Inthakhin Inthakin, or the City Pillar of Chiang Mai. Therefore, it can be said that besides seeing critical ancient sites, I also learned about the history of Chiang Mai through this temple.
