Wat Intharawat - วัดอินทราวาส

Wat Intharawat - วัดอินทราวาส is somewhere we where taken by a driver when we were in Chiang Mai.

This simple and beautiful viharn, open pavillion and large open mondop was built in 1958 in Lanna style and it is certainly impressive.

The gardens around the Wat are immaculately cared for and on reading about it I find that the because it is one of the very few remaining wooden temples in Thailand that you can find AND is under the care of the Thai Fine Arts Department - thanks for the info RenownTravel.

The roof of the temple is incredibly detailed and it is nice to know that it is protected.

Around the temple there are small open corridors (there is a name which I cannot recall) which are quite beautiful and it is worth walking round them quite slowly.
