This small temple on a hill 2 km from Pai is especially interesting for its setting and the view overlooking the city you have from it. The 353 steps long staircase to reach the temple is charming even if you can skip it and take the road to access to Wat Phra That Mae Yen. The temple consists of two buildings and a few small golden chedis. In front of the temple entrance, there is a little market with stalls where you can buy products, mainly hats and scarves knitted by the vendors. They can be very useful because it is cold at night and in the early morning in Pai. There are also two coffee shops. Behind the amrket, there is another Wihaan housing a reclining Buddha. And over the hill behind it, you see Pai Big Buddha. Recently finished, the statue attracts many visitors who often do not take time to visit the temple. As for me they miss the most interesting part !
Phra That Mae Yen is one of most accessible attractions by bicycle around Pai and a good introduction to your stay in Pai.
