Wat Suan Dok

Built in the 14th century by the King of Lanna on the grounds of his pleasure garden, this temple was originally intended to serve as a retreat for a revered monk from Sukothai. Suan Dock is now becoming known for its courses in meditation as well as its "Monk Chats," during which monks of the temple answer questions regarding their lives as Buddhist monks.
