  • Every year, I always visit my grandmother at Lamphon province, and the compulsory activity I need to do is to pay respect to Buddha at Wat Phra That Hariphunchai, aiming at doing meritable things in order to get positive or good karma for oneself. Wat Phra That Hariphunchai regards as the heart of Lamphon’s people, and in every religious day in Buddhish, people annually go to this temple to make merit, to pay respect to Buddha, and to donate money to charity at the temple. Wat Phra That Hariphunchai is a sacred place in Lamphon province for more than thousands of years, also called as the year of the Rooster, and located at the center of a city. When walking through the temple’s entrance, we will be surprised by the 46 metre high gold chedi containing a hair of the Lord Buddha. After we feel blessed with paying respect to Bhddat at Wat Phara That Hariphunchai, we should continually fill up your stomach by delicious located foods. Near the temple’s entrance, we can add up our refreshment by a sweet grass jelly drink. Next, in the front of the temple’s entrance, you will find out at a well-known and famous Khao Soi (Curried Noodle Soup with Chicken) restaurant recommended by food magazines. NOTE : If you have an opportunity to visit Lamphon province, you cannot miss to pay respect to Buddha at Wat Phra That Hariphunchai the whole reasons.
  • Nice temple. Must see. Whoever that born on rooster year (Zodiac sign) should go to do a worship here.
  • Great place to visit, hear the monks chanting and bells ringing
  • The most important temple in the city of Lampun, built in 12th century as a royal monastery. It's the worship place for those who were born in the zodiac year of chicken.
