Wat Mahawan (GPS: 18.78788, 98.99565; Thai: วัดมหาวัน ) is a Thai Buddhist temple on Thapae Road in Chiang Mai, Thailand. This moderate size temple combines Lanna and Burmese features. The buildings and trees of Wat Mahawan are quite tightly placed. It comprises a Lanna-style viharn and ubosot on the east side while on the west side, there's a Burmese chedi, a ho trai and a square brick viharn. The buildings of Wat Mahawan is quite close to Tha Phae Road, so you can look from the roadside at the temple. It has a low wall that surrounds it. At the gate are Burmese chinthe facing out. Chinthes also stand guard in front of the viharn and at each corner of the chedi.
