Walk in Wat Lok Moli Buddhist Temple – Chiang Mai, Thailand

Wat Lok Moli (วัดโลกโมฬี) is a Buddhist temple in the city of Chiang Mai. It is the largest city in northern Thailand, the capital of Chiang Mai province and the second largest city in Thailand.

The temple is situated on the north side of the north moat surrounding the old part of the city, about 400 meters west of the Chang Phuak city gate.

It is not known when the temple was built but it is first mentioned in a charter in 1367 CE. The sixth king of the Mangrai dynasty, King Kuena (1355-1385), invited ten Buddhist monks from Burma to spread their teachings on Theravada Buddhism. The monks were housed in this temple.
