Wat Ratchamonthien (วัดราชมณเฑียร), i.e. the ‘Temple of the Royal House’ or ‘Temple of the Royal Palace’, is the Thai name of a Mahanikaai (มหานิกาย) Buddhist temple in Chiang Mai, located to the south of the northern city moat, opposite of Wat Lohk Molih (วัดโลกโมฬี), which is situated across and to the north of the city moat. It was established in AD 1441 by King Tilokarat (ติโลกราช), in the year of his coronation. When the Lan Na (ล้านนา) Kingdom collapsed and became a vassal state under Burma all the temples in the Kingdom were deserted until King Kawila (กาวิละ) in AD 1775 restored the independence of Lan Na, after which Wat Ratchamontien was renovated. The wihaan, the temple's prayer hall, has two storeys and the top floor is home to its principal Buddha statue. Outside and adjacent to the spacious upper balcony to the front of the wihaan's second storey is Phra Chao Luang Than Jai (พระเจ้าหลวงทันใจ), a large Buddha statue seated in the maravijaya pose often found in northern Thailand and a kind of Buddha statue of which it is said that its creation should be completed in just one day, which in itself is considered a miracle, in order for it to possess special powers, such as fulfilling the wishes of devotees that come and ask for it.
