Photo of Other temples in Lampang

Wat Chiangrai: An ornate little temple with mirrored tiles stuck to white painted walls, this wat recalls Chiang Rai’s famous Wat Rom Klao or White Temple. It’s worth a photo if you’re passing by - it’s found on the short stretch between the river and clock tower.

Wat Sri Rong Muang: Another Burmese-style wat -- or at least a wat with a tiered Burmese style roof -- this one dates to the same period as Wat Sri Chum. Wat Sri Rong Muang’s construction was ordered by a wealthy Burmese merchant in 1904. The temple is open from 6:00-18:00 and has a small trinket market located outside the main gate. This wat has an entrance fee of 50/20 baht for adults/children.

Wat Pah Fang: Yes, another attractive Burmese-style temple! With a large gold-coated chedi and teak prayer hall, there are usually has visiting Burmese monks in residence at Pah Fang, which is located on Sanarmbin (Airport) Road, a 10-minute walk out of the centre.
