Wat Phra That Lampang Luang, Lampang

4.6
#1 of 10 in Historic Sites 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.

  • It is a temple that has come to Lampang. For the year The Ox is the temple of the people born in the ox. The temple is far outside the city. Renting a car is more convenient than having a parking lot. There are many tourist spots in touristy. Many foreigners walk to the back of the temple to have the relics upside down. Don't forget to visit the Emerald Buddha. Temple closed 17:00
