Wat Ku Tao :Chiangmai

The chedi of Wat Ku-Tao was built in 1613 in the shape of five guards of various sizes beautifuly decorated with colored porcelain - representing five Lord Buddhas.

People disagree on whether the unusual chedi resembles a stack of five pumpkins or five alms bowls in ascending sizes. But one thing is for sure, behind the walls guarded by celestial lions, the main appeal of the temple is its peace as savoured under the banyan tree
