Chiangmai Temple in the Old City

Chiangmai is the second largest city of Thailand and was the former capital over 200years ago.  

Temples dot the area outside the old walls of the ancient city.

In the old city, along the main avenue of the weekend market, temples integrate with daily life and the grounds are opened for vendors to sell their merchandise.
