This is a little-known but very beautiful temple compound in Lamphun’s suburbs north of the moat enclosing the old town. It was originally the site of the first Buddhist temple in northern Thailand, dating from 541, long before the old city’s foundation. Queen Chamathewi is...More

This wat doesn't have as many recommendations in guidebooks because Lamphun isn't a tourist hotspot. But it isn't far from Chiangmai and incorporates multi headed serpents in ways not usually seen in the major cities. The rooflines of the temple are beautiful. Definitely worth a...More

I stumbled onto this one driving back streets in Lamphun. There are way more beautiful temples down here than TA has listed. This one didn't even show up under near me now when I was standing there! Go figure. Anyway, this really is my favorite...More
