Buddhist Association of Chiang Mai
For centuries Chiang Mai has been the centre of religious activity in Northern Thailand. During the Lanna era, Buddhism was the main religion that flourished and grew; the many ancient temples in the city are testimony to this legacy. Important ceremonies and functions are held at the Buddhist association which also serves as a Buddhist youth club.
If you happen to be in Chiang Mai on a Buddhist holiday (known as the wan phra), religious talks and lectures are arranged by the club. These can be a great insight into the religion and those who have chosen to follow it.
