The Wat Haripoonchai is home of the world’s largest bronze gong, this Wat (means Temple) was built on the site of Queen Chamadevi’s palace in 1044 AD. Not only Buddhist influences, but as well post-Dvarabvati (Indian) architecture can be found in this in 1930’s renovated Temple. The original was built during the reign of King Arthitayarat, some 800 years ago. The 46- meter high Chedi with a nine-tier umbrella, made out of 6,5-kilo pure gold, the result of the restoration work in 1443 by a king of Chiang Mai surrounds the main characteristics of the temple. And it has been long regarded as a major place of worship as the ashes of the Queen are interred in the main stupa of the Wat.
The complex also houses a school for Buddhist monks, depending time by time if foreign visitors are allowed. Out of security reasons, the temple complex closes at 17:00 hrs. The trip concludes with a fascinating and relaxing drive along the old Lampoon-Chiang Mai Road before we arrive back at your hotel in Chiang Mai.
