Religious Site
Dating back to the 14th century, Wat Lok Molee houses one of the region's oldest and most impressive chedis (Buddhist reliquaries). The massive chedi, commissioned in 1527 by King Ket, is flanked by little niches, each with an image of Buddha. Inside, the chedi houses the ashes of many kings of the Mengrai dynasty. Walk around the grounds, taking time to admire the intricate wooden architecture and peaceful, spiritual atmosphere.
