With over 300 temples in Chiang Mai, Wat Doi Suthep is probably the most visited one by both Thais and foreigners. “Wat” means temple in Thai and “Doi Suthep” is the name of the mountain it is built on.

In Thai temples, seven different Buddha statues with a bowl in front of them can often be seen. Each statue represents a day of the week. According to Thai customs, one should pray and donate to the Buddha of his birthday.
