Chiang Mai, Thailand

Temples galore: That's what you find in Thailand. And, there's so much gold. Wat Phrathat is located on Doi Suthep, a peak in the mountains surrounding Chiang Mai. Beneath this casing of gold is a relic of the Buddha which was brought to the mountain on the back of a white elephant 600 years ago. [2011]
