Believed to be one of the oldest temples in Northern Thailand, but because of numerous renovations over the centuries, it is hard to prove any specific dates.

Since then, the original design has changed but the buddhas are still standing (there are some sitting ones too). Inside the temple, there are nice murals depicting the effects of good and bad deeds. Visitors are offered to make their own buddha amulets, clay and casts are provided. It’s fun.
