Wat Ku Tao : Chiang Mai, Thailand

Formerly named Wat Veru Vanaram, Wat Ku Tao is noteworthy for a pagoda that looks like putting five watermelons on top of each other so the locals name it Chedi Ku Tao. (Watermelon is “ba tao” in Lanna dialect). Architectures, interior decorations and Buddha images enshrined here show a strong influence of Burmese arts.
