CHAO PHU YA SHRINE – Chinese - Thai Ancestor Shrine
Dec 2018 • Friends
A small but stunning and colourful shrines overlooking the lake at Nong Bua Park. Locals call it to great grandfather and great grandmother ancestor shrine. It is and important shrine representing the Chinese-Thai community of Udon Thani whom had migrated here centuries back. Most of them are the third generation in Thailand and was told to us by one of the Chinese – Thai working committee members of this shrine whom was in third generation.
All the roofs the main pillars are ornamented with colourful dragons and in front of the shrine was an ornament dragon pillar, by the lake is a vibrant pavilion lit up at night and you can see the mirror reflection on the water. Going into the shrine, at the centre of the main altar it house two seated male and female figurine representing the ancestors of the Chinese-Thai residents of Udon Thani. The locals Chinese – Thai will drop by to burn an incense at the shrine praying for health and prosperity.

Chinese temple
Sep 2017 • Family
Chao Pu-Ya shrine is a colourful Chinese temple overlooking Nong Bua Lake. The central altar features the Chao Pu (grandfather) and Ya (grandmother) diety. Entrance is free and footwear has to be removed before entering the temple. A pleasant place to visit with lovely views of the lake.

For the religious people this is a unique shrine, for the others it s a great piece of architecture blessed with a peaceful lake. This site present the history of Chinese in Thailand. Inside the last pavillon you can watch a summary in English on the wall-mounted flat screen.
Don t forget to go across the street to see the water wall and the museum . Why not feed the hundreds of colourful carps ? and end your visit savouring a great drink at the coffee shop. Try the pink drink or the fresh orange juice fabulous.

Nice place for evening jogging , chinese shrine by the lotus lake
Jan 2017 • Solo
Iwent jogging around the nearly 3 Kms longed lotus lake , nearby this shrine. It's recreational public park for locals , so there are crowds of local spening relaxed time and exercise there. The shrine is on one side of the lake with dpacious parking lots and food hawkers around there. The shrine complex has several buildings with chinese deities. During my visit , there is lantrens lining all over the complex, celebrating chinese new year. What a cool place in the city center, quite near the raiway station.

Great Grandfather & Grandmother shrine
Dec 2016 • Friends
At the southern edge of popularly name by locals Nong Bua Lake (Chaloem Phrakiat Park) is the Thai - Chinese ancestral temple inside the park. Situated near the eastern of the UD Town and train station 15 minutes walking distance. Chao Pu (grandfather) and Ya (grandmother) is the earliest Chinese community that migrated to Udon Thani and this is the shrines highy revered by the now Thai - Chinese community of this province. Inside the shrines seated two small statue of the one male with beared and another female without representing the Chao Pu - Ya. Every year the Thung Si Mueang festival is celebrate at this temple in December with its 99m golden dragon. A beautiful pavilion is build on the lake where the golden dragon is resting on it. In the evening there are some stalls selling locals snack and foods around the park. The committee that we met said this year is the 66 years after the committee was set up. And with the contributions from the Udon Chinese communities it is expending its site.

Chinese New Year

We went here to celebrate Chinese New Year. It was nice, it's situated by the water.
It is a little run down, but it was worth the visit.
