Visit to Chiang Mai, Thailand

On a recent visit to Chiang Mai, Thailand, my close friend took us to the Wat Prathat Doi Suthep Temple atop a mountain. Built during the late 14th century, the temple is a centerpiece for Buddhism in Chiang Mai. Inside the Pagoda, there are numerous Buddha statues and wall paintings depicting the life of Buddha. Here are some pictures from that visit.
