Wat Chedi Luang

Wat Chedi Luang, originally uploaded by Robbi Baba.

This thing is a monster! It's so huge. And old. I think I read that it's 700 years old or more?
Chiang Mai has so many Wats, but this is one of the most famous ones. I've been treking around visiting them the last few days. I've gotten to meet some monks, including the fellow this morning who gave me my lucky bracelet.
I went to a huge Wat today, after my root canal. It's home of a large Buddhist university, and had a brand spanking new looking chedi, that seemed almost this big. It was covered in gold!
