Seeing The North - Chiang Mai Cultural Tour (Morning Alms Giving and Visit Doi Suthep Temple)

Important Information on Morning Alms Giving

Alms or almsgiving is a religious rite which, in general, involves giving materially to another as an act of religious virtue.

It exists in a number of religions. In Philippine Regions, alms are given as charity to benefit the poor. In Buddhism, alms are given by lay people to monks and nuns to nurture laic virtue, merit and blessings and to ensure monastic continuity.

In Theravada Buddhism, monks and nuns go on a daily almsround to collect food. This is often perceived as giving the laypeople the opportunity to make merit. Money should not be accepted by a Buddhist monk or nun.

Dress appropriately: shoulders, chest and legs should be covered.

Cold weather, scenic mountains, handicrafts and spicy cuisine- these are the attractions of the region. Doi Suthep Temple remains an important sight that first time visitors to Chiang Mai shouldn't miss.

A flight of 306 steps, bordered by a NAGA balustrade, lead up from the parking area to the temple, which has beautiful decorrated buildings and a Lanna - style chedi covered with engraved gold plates, flanked by four ornamental umbrellas.
