This Shan (Burmese) style temple is well worth a stop. Beautiful Teak and inlay work very tastefully done. There is a serenity about this temple that makes it worth the visit.

This temple proved to be surprisingly delightful. Dating to the second half of the 19th century when a large influx of ethnic Shan came to Phrae to work in timber concessions, this temple attests to a little known period of history. It is made of...More

This is another Tai Yai (Myanmar) style temple in Phrae province. It is very nice and situated close to the city center. Inside there is a beautiful main Buddha statue called Phra Chom Sawan. There is no admission fee and you can take photo inside.

It doesn't look like most Thai wat temples. It's very old and wooden and beautifully crafted. I only spent twenty minutes there.

Not your average Thai Wat. A beautiful Burmese style wooden building and inside almost reminiscent of the Mezquita in Cordoba with all the pillars. Off to the side an excellent and interesting stupa. Worth a detour from the center of town.

We loved this teak temple, built in the Burmese style. The roof is supported by numerous teak columns and the interior and exterior are finely decorated with carvings, fretwork and coloured mirror glass. It’s all tastefully done and there’s nothing gaudy. There are several looms...More

Most Thai monasteries are gaudy in the extreme. Wat Jom Sawan is the exception. It's not quite stark, but the beautiful teak is the star of the show and adornment is kept to a minimum. Even the interior is mininalist, but lovely in its restraint....More
