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.
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.
