History tells us..that a former king of Thailand set free a white Elephant to roam the lands and mountains around Chiang Mai. Where ever that Elephant stopped would be where the new temple would be built. It so happened to be on the top of Doi Suthep. The Elephant died soon after but is still remembered as part of the temple by a life size statue (not in this picture) The mist was due to the rain that day..soon after torrential rain hit the city of Chiang Mai bringing down its walls and derailing trains..I was lucky..I missed the train by an hour..August 2006.
