Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It is monumental and so is worth the walk or the ride. It is big, unbelievable gold and framed by an equally unbelievable blue sky.

Read the guide books and stroll round yourself.

Pay in Kip and the ticket collector gives the poorest dollar to Kip exchange rate in the city!

We did visit, and tbh not much to compliment about. It is pretty far from the City and not worth the visit. There are many other Wat within the City that are just as interesting.

The temple was crowded with both tourists and locals. There were many horse carriages serving tourists in front of the temple. The entrance of this grand temple is a huge Lanna style gorgeous arch door. Many things to see inside the temple including a holy pagoda of the Ox year (zodiac) that contains Buddha's relics. We walked 3 times in clockwise direction around the pagoda to pay respect. Our guide pointed us the position of 2 bullet marks on the brass cage that surround the base of the pagoda which freed the city from Burmese general (and killed him) about 200 years ago (ask your guide for more details). Then, he led us to a little house. Inside the house (only men are allowed to enter), there is an upside down image of the pagoda on a fabric screen. This is a real-life example of an optical phenomenon that demonstrates rectilinear propagation of light passing through a small hole (same as pinhole camera). He also took us to the temple's museum. Last but certainly not least, we worshipped "Phra Kaew Don Tao", Lampang's famous emerald Buddha carved from a greenish jade found in a watermelon (according to legend of Miss Suchada). Finally, I bought a model of the pagoda, since my zodiac is ox.

Just a 20 minute drive from the centre of Lampang this very important temple is a must see place, lots to see inside and we spent a good couple of hours looking round and taking pictures. Outside are various food stalls and souvenir shops as well.

Must visit the landmark of Lampang province with classic northern construction design for the temple. The age and story for this place start from 1956 BC and you must see the mirror of the temple upside down on the screen that is one of unseen Thailand stories.

Worth a stop if you are driving up to Chiang Mai .The temple was founded in the 13th century. Its name translates to “the temple of Lampang’s Great Buddha Relic”. The architecture is a mix of Lanna and Thai Lü styles.

The Wat Phra That Lampang Luang is a fortified temple or wiang; it was built on top of an earth mound and is surrounded by high brick walls

Old tempel just south of Lampang.
Beautiful Chedi and nice surroundings.
Not the largest tempel, but ancient and well visited by locals.

A large and absolutely beautiful temple near Lampang and not to be missed. About 20 kilometers away but worth the trip. Will not be disappointed at all as it’s very impressive. There is a separate building that has the unexplained reflection of the pagoda inside. I’m still wondering how it is possible. Unfortunately women are not allowed inside. I drove there but I did see the Lampang horse carts outside so i assume you can take those from Lampang but best to check. Highly recommend.
