Wat Phra That Lampang Luang, Lampang

4.6
#2 of 14 in Things to do in Lampang
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.

  • Praised by a well-known travel guide as "one of the most beautiful temples of the country", the inspection of the site is sobering: lots of old wood (main Vihara), the usual Buddha statues, that was it. As other temples in Lampang are much more attractive!

  • When in Lampang, you can not skip this ancient but still active temple, with lots of local folks coming everyday for their prayer and circumambulation around the Buddha relic Stupa.  more »
  • Set of Buddhist temples outside of Lampang, which is worth a visit. Includes the Wihan Huang, wooden structure of Thailand oldest with murals jataka (stories of the previous lives of the Buddha) and Haw Phra Phutthabaht where the image is projected inverted of Czech it and only they can enter men.
