Wat Suan Dok was founded in 1370 by the King Kue Na for a monk coming from The Sukhothai Kingdom who found a relic of the Buddha.
In front of the Chedi there are the mausoleums containing the ashes of the members of the Royal Family of Chiang Mai.
Also there is the campus of Buddhist University and in specific days of the week, you can go to chat with monks. Thay can practice their english and you can learn about Buddhism. I loved the white and gold contrast.
