Watt Suan Dok - Next to the Buddhist University

Mahachulalongkornrajavidyala University, where I am teaching English to monks,  is located next to Watt (temple) Suan Dok.

This is one of Chiang Mai's oldest temples, with a huge, gold covered chedi or pagoda that dates back to 1371.

Ancient, gold covered chedi on the grounds of Watt Suan Dok, houses holy Buddhist relics.

On the grounds of Watt Suan Dok, is a small temple housing a magnificient Buddha figure. 

The temple is relatively small, but the Buddha figure is stunning. This temple is located right next to the classroom where I teach my English classes to the monks. Those are white live flowers in the front.  They look a little like flocked Christmas trees!
