Wat Phra That Lampang Luang, Lampang
(4.6/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • A beautiful place where they should come to Lampang, but may have to rent a car or car because there is no Charter bus through a minibus passing through the outer, but it must also find the bus arrives at the temple again anyway. Temple row area. There are even those of the market, shopping for food, and they have to sit around with.

  • A quiet place to relax. When I was there was only a few national visitors. Admission free, usual stalls before the system.

  • 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.Easy to go there by scooter or bicycle from Lampang.

  • The most importang temple in Lumpang. Make sure you don't miss it!!
