The Silver Temple, Chiang Mai. Take 2

A couple of weeks ago I went out with ‘The Artist Formerly Known As Thacker (who now has his own TV show on Thai TV on Saturdays believe it or not!) and Catch A Door (Click on the last ping pong tournament to find out who ‘Catch A Door’ is…) to a nearby temple. Catch A Door was leaving the next day to go to Nepal so I wanted to show him something that most people hadn’t seen. ‘The Artist Formerly Known As Thacker’ was flying to Bangkok that day to I thought it would be cool to go to the silver temple which is not only surprisingly close to where I live, but so many people are unaware of it. So off we went. We had fun and acted like teenagers like most boys do when they are in a group together, took a few photos and disappeared into out respective sunsets.

So why is this take 2 do you ask? Good question! I went to write about this last week and for some reason all my photos had disappeared from my phone, and i mean ALL of them. I looked at my phone for a few minutes hoping they would magically appear again and when they didn’t, I realised I had to go again to get the photos and secure some evidence of my trip. So below are some photos of a really cool temple. The main temple is just your bog standard temple, but the temple to the side of it is made entirely out of silver.

They had signs made out of silver which was a nice touch, they even had a small silver tram!

Finally, the last picture is the entrance just off of the road. it’s definitely a hidden treasure. Blink and you’ll miss it!
