4.7/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web
Take in the minutely detailed murals depicting rural life at Wat Phumin. Constructed in the 16th century in a cross-shaped design, the temple appears as if it were sitting on the backs of two giant snakes, with four distinct entrances each bearing their own motifs. Head inside to view the famous murals around the central golden altar, painted during the reconstruction of the temple over a century ago. The distinctive paintings depict scenes from the traditional lifestyle of the Thai Lue, the most famous being "Whispering of Love." Purchase souvenirs at the gift shop next door. To get the most from your visit, consider reading up on the murals' significance before you go, or see if you can ask someone on site to explain them. Put Wat Phumin at the forefront of your travel plans using our Nan vacation planner.

  • The temple is without doubt one of the most favorite tourist attractions in Nan. Its interior is as impressive as its exterior. The temple itself is built unconventionally with four entrances. When stepping inside, you will see four Buddha statues with their backs against one another facing the four directions. What's more is its famous murals depicting scenes of local life. The most famous scene is a man whispering to the ear of a woman.
