North of the old city, Wat Ku Tao dates from 1613 and has a distinctive Tai Lü– style chedi, in the shape of a pile of diminishing spheres. The chedi contains the ashes of Tharawadi Min, a son of the Burmese king Bayinnaung, ruler of Lanna from 1578 to 1607. The temple is a quiet, untouristed place with photographic merit.
