Moving on, the next temple to visit is one of the oldest in Chiang Rai. Wat Phra That Chedi Luang is a Lanna styled Buddhist stupa built in the shape of a huge bell. The largest 'chedi', this impressive structure was built circa 1290. Spend about thirty minutes here, admiring the inside of the temple and reveling in the peace.
