  • Temple city is another temple, Wat Ming town, Nan. NaN is NaN pillar called the magnificent architecture, both inside and outside. If you come in at night, it has a spectacular illumination.

  • I have to think that the artist who created the White Temple (see Chiang Rai) has found part of his inspiration by visiting this Wat.

  • The temple was built in 1857 and is completely decorated in white, very unusual architecture. Also houses the city pillar of NaN, which is available on gold-plated base and a Brahma head with 4 faces. Worth a visit!

  • Imitation of the white temple in Chiang Rai, one may ask. Still a nice place to visit and not to be missed. Pllars are made of wood, piece by piece hand carved.
  • Spectacular. Well embellished. A bit hot, though, as there aren't many trees and plants at the time when I visited it.
  • To me this was the most beautiful temple in central Nan. Very nice ornaments and the temple area was very calm and relaxed. An absolute marvel of craftsmanship.
  • An unusual temple, built in a highly ornate style reminiscent of Chiang Rai's White Temple. Nan's City Pillar is in front of the temple and constructed in the same style.
  • Good

Where to stay in Nan

You'll be hard pressed to find five-star accommodations in Nan, but the city does offer plenty of cozy budget choices. Hostels and guesthouses cater to backpackers with basic rooms and dorm-style lodgings, while hotels offer amenities like hot water, air conditioning, and Wi-Fi. If you prefer to splurge on your Nan trip, look for resorts located on the outskirts and in the city center, but do not expect the luxurious treatment offered by the larger centers.
