Wat Analayo

A fascinating, rambling site

What we say: 4 stars

The eclectic mix of religious architecture and iconography rambles across a fascinating area stretching out along a hilltop ridge. White rabbits, large mandalas, towering seated Buddhas and stretching nagas come together in an interesting and not too strenuous stroll. Construction is ongoing and the entire scene has a bit of a tapestry feel to it.

Be sure to seek out some of the views, both towards Phayao and behind the temple as well. Worthy of at least an hour's exploration.

Well worth a visit.

How to get there: The best way to reach Wat Analayo is under your own steam. The temple is well signposted once you find the main turnoff, but the main turnoff is not signposted! It's around five kilometres out of town, with the turnoff to your left as you're leaving Phayao. Look for a cluster of blue signs to other sights, and Wat Analayo is signposted about 100m down that road.
