K.Wife has just informed that we aint going to visit friends in Wat Sri Soda now but to another called Wat Chom Tong which according to a quick check is somewhere about 50 clicks outside Chiang Mai.

She is even talking about her and a mate being a nun for a couple of days :o ..dear dear married to a Nun...wat next?

Anyway once again any info...thanks R... :D

They probably mean Wat Phrathat Si Chom Thong, in Chom Thong - the town where you turn off hwy 108 to go up Doi Inthanon. Temple's origin dates from 749AD.

Wat Phrathat Si Chom Thong have a very nice sister "Wat Pa" a few clicks north of Chom Tong. Stafed by Mae Chee, they specialise in providing meditation retreats etc. for stressed out womenfolk.

Yes,That sounds like the place.

She did mention that its up/near Doi Inthanon which as it happens I have never visited ...yet.

Also like the idea of it being a retreat for stressed out womenfolk, could be in for a good hol... :o

A large meditation centre to the rear of the Wat, English speaking instructors as well, could even book yourself in if you wanted(?)
When I visited in January the Wat was undergoing extensive re-furbishment, could be completed by now, but hardly condusive to good meditation I would have thought.Attached File  CNX0214.jpg   59.17KB   23 downloads
