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 temple complex with a subsequent garden. We arrived there before the closure of the gates and inside could attend the ceremonies which is apparently not as common. Overall very impressive with lots of original charm. A Bescuh is recommended.

  • The temple has a temple to the wood, and the sand around the temple scribes of a single bear sithandon. Etched water points that still represents the spirit of the ancient artists. But the revised story, it Temple dogs, traps are the most beautiful.

  • 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.
