 Wat Doi Suthep or Wat Phra BoromaThat Doi Suthep 'Doi Suthep Reliquary' is an important symbol of Chiang Mai. The Reliquary was constructed in the reign of King KuNa of the MangRai dynasty (1355-1385) after Phra Maha  Sumana Thera had brought Relic from Sukhothai to Chiang Mai in year 1371. At first the King ordered the Relic to be enshrined in Suan Dok. No local record mentioned when the Relic was placed on Wat Doi Suthep Chedi but the Yonok Annals compiled by a Bangkok scholar in 1896 says that the King had the Relic enshrined there in year 1386.

Here is the statue Of White Elephant Legend. 
According to legend, a monk named Phra Sumana Thera from Sukhothai had a dream in this vision he was told to go to Pang Cha and look for a Relic bone, which many claim was Buddha's shoulder bone. The sacred Relic displayed magical powers by it glowed, it was able to vanish, it could move itself and replicate itself. Phra Sumana Thera took the Relic to King Dharmmaraja who ruled the Sukhothai. However, the relic displayed no abnormal characteristics, and the king, doubtful of the relic's authenticity, told Phra Sumana Thera to keep it.
However, King Nu Na of the Lanna Kingdom heard of the relic and offered the monk to take it to him instead. In 1368 with Dharmmaraja's permission, Phra Sumana Thera took the relic to what is now Lamphun, in northern Thailand. The relic apparently split in two, one piece was the same size, the other was smaller than the original. The smaller piece of the relic was enshrined at a temple in Suan Dok. The other piece was placed by the King on the back of a White Elephant which was released in the jungle. The White Elephant is said to have climbed up Doi Suthep, at the time called Doi Aoy Chang (Sugar Elephant Mountain), trumpeted three times before dying at the site. It was interpreted as a sign and King Nu Na ordered the construction of a temple at the site.
