Baan Sao Nak

Baan Sao Nak

Fascinating

More on Lampang
An impressive teak house set a short walk north of the river that bisects Lampang, Baan Sao Nak is more than 100 years old -- it was constructed during the reign of King Rama V -- and demonstrates both northern Thai and Burmese influences in its design.
Travelfish says:

Baan Sao Nak means "house of many pillars", which seems like a fair label for the place given the roof is supported by some 116 teak columns -- a throwback to Lampang’s rich teak harvesting past.

This is easily one of the primary attractions of downtown Lampang both to look at from outside, but also to browse the interiors, antiques and furniture. Look out for the lacquerware and ceramics in particular, while outside there is a rice barn and a cute buggy along with a collection of other displays around the lawn grounds.

Transport information

To get to Baan Sao Nak, cross over the river and follow the signs. It's about a 15-minute walk from downtown. As with most sights in town, it is conveniently signposted in English.
