Wat Phra That Lampang Luang, Lampang

4.6
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Lampang Province
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.

  • Incredible this many gold ornaments, a beautiful temple of the second, Emerald Buddha from Thailand shows. The Buddha himself is half as large as in the Royal Palace in Bangkok. Very nice facility

  • With a taxi for 400 year we carry about 45 min. from Lampang to the Zempelanlage. This teak House Temple is decorated with paintings, beautiful and absolutely worth seeing.
