4.6/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web
Unlike many of Thailand's other highly revered temples, Wat Phra That Lampang Luang has been preserved in its original state. It was built in the 15th century on the site of a fortress that had guarded the road to the city. Admire the ornate architecture, murals, and reliefs carved in the wood. According to legend, Buddha once visited this temple and gifted a strand of hair, which is kept in the temple's main pagoda. The complex also includes three small museums boasting a collection of various relics. A couple of stalls on site sell refreshments and souvenirs.

  • The city of lampang and the wat phra lampang Luang temple it was for us a crush. We decided to rent a motorbike even if we had never driven one and it was the perfect choice. The city lends itself to be discovered easily by motorbike, it is rather ordered and it's easy to get around. All the temples are magnificent and the market it was also a favorite. City pretty empty of tourists because we stop here when there is no time! While well worth the money.

  • The most importang temple in Lumpang. Make sure you don't miss it!!
  • A large temple complex with lots of different areas to see. The small emerald Buddha is quite special but the highlight is the camera obscura that shows an image of the golden stupa. Make sure you don't miss it.
