Wikipedia weet te vertellen:

Wat Chedi Liam (originally Wat Ku Kham; also written as Wat Chedi Liem) is one of the wats in the ancient Thai city of Wiang Kum Kam, now part of present day Chiang Mai. The original name Wat Ku Kham means 'The temple of the Gold Chedi (stupa)' and the later name means 'Temple with Angular Chedi'. Monks still reside here.

The current buildings are from a renovation in 1908 CE by a Burmese trader. Because of this many of the decorations of the wat are Burmese in style. For example, all but one of the Buddha images on the chedi are wearing the yellow Burmese colourings rather than the white Thai colours.

The chedi was also renovated in 1992 CE when a number of other improvements were made to the site. Not all of these improvements were popular, nor were some needed repairs carried out. Despite its great age the wat is used in much the same way as later wats (for example, there is a weekend market there).

The Chedi (Cetiya) is a five-tiered design common in the early Lanna period and shows clear influence of the Mon Haripunchai design. Each corner of the chedi is guarded by a large, outward facing lion, and there are Buddha statues showing different mudras on four of the tiers of the Chedi. The main hall decorations are in very good condition both inside and out.
