All surrounded by a venerable wall ( a fortress existed here from the 8th century) Most of the buildings are dating back from the 15th century.... More

Some are more faded than others but you can see the stories. It can get very busy and you need to be careful of dogs their waste and bird droppings The pin hole... More

A Wat from 13/14 century, build in the Lanna style. Very impressive outside and inside. Very close to the town of Lampang (about 20km) can be reached by the highway or by a backroad from Hang chat.

This temple complex in Lampang is interesting for a few reasons. The architecture is different than many of the other Thai temples, and it has some fun bits. There is a "camera obscura" (some writing say there are TWO, but I only found one) that is open only to men. You can see the image of the main temple cast... More

At Thai temples I know a lot of the monks keep the stray dogs inside the temple and I was weary of that but when I was walking around the temple compounds these dogs come up to me in a pack and started running after me but lucky they got shooed away by my mum. Never again will I come... More

We went to see this temple after having not visited for a long time. It is a great place to spend some time--allow a couple hours to thoroughly enjoy it. We went on a major Buddhist holiday so it was busy. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. There is a historic complex which is the main part of the temple.... More

Overall architecture is Lanna style while the chedi is of Sukhothai style. Temple was occupied by Burmese where they were being defeated by a infiltrated Thai.

Interesting templeand pagoda, all in great shape. Nice to take your time to soak in the ancient culture stories. Please read about this area before you go if you do not have a guide.If you go just to look, it will be just another wat.

There is a more modern temple adjacent to the historic buildings.These are beautiful with elaborate carvings and decorations. There is normally a small market alongside the temple,it was raining when we were there and the tiled floors were slippy barefoot.
