Very imprssive wat ,with good landscaping.The naga bridge at the rear and waterwheel are so tranquil.Oldest parts have interesting Ramakien murals which sadly need restoration ,see them now.Again some areas of wat prohibit women.

There are many temples in Lampang, this one we selected from a brochure from the Indra ceramic outlet. With limited time we stop and slowly walked around the temple, it is ornate and a lot of history at this location. The reclining Buddha is quite...More
