Temple on the Mountain

The most famous temple in Chiang Mai is Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep, The Temple on the Mountain. From our guesthouse Mom and I took a tuktuk to the zoo and haggled for a taxi up the windy hill to get there on our last day together.

Dogs on the way up. There are dogs all over Thailand.

Dragons are at every temple too, this one was particularly awesome - four of them are coming out of the mouth of another, see?

The dragons body goes all the way up to the temple.

The girls you see praying here used to be boys, transvestites are very common in Thailand. 
They were really nice and smiled at me.
