Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
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.

    We heard of the temple when listened to Lampang's history at Museum Lampang, so we asked our guide to take us there. Our guide told us that the temple received "award of merit" from UNESCO in 2008. The 1350 years old (approximately) temple has witnessed and took part in many significant events of the city and the kingdom such as founding of an ancient city "Khelang Nakhon" (about 1350 years ago), united with Lanna kingdom and became the center of the city (about 700 years ago), occupied by Burma (about 450 years ago), reconquest of the city from Burma (about 200 years ago), and was the place where the first city pillar of Lampang established (about 160 years ago).

    At the time when we visited, the temple was serene (due to Covid pandemic?) and well-maintained. Highlight of the temple is "The hall of thousand Buddhas", an old open-air gorgeous wooden hall in a combination of Lanna-Burmese-Chinese architecture style. Inside the hall, there are 4 sitting Buddha statues face all 4 directions and 1080 votive tablets decorated around its inner wall (that's why it got the name).

    I strolled on sunday evening of february, when the climate changed a lot with unusual heat at this moment. This temple was claimed to be biggest golden teak monastery in town. Built to be Indra God 's palace with burmese arts both interiors and outsides. There were Buddha statue in myanmar style. It's quite peaceful , door opens ftom 8:00am to 18:00 .

    This white rooster statute is a big one on the highway heading north before entering the city. Taking picture there is a good start to beginn journey at this tranquil city, I start exploring the nearby Kaad Muan Jai, ceramic center where I can select local products.

    I took 3hours loop horse carriage tour with the driver acting as my private guide. This temple is highlighted with golden pagoda amid tall trees in the citycenter. It's very serene with shades of trees and the librarian building is the hidden gem of local artefacts collected by the fomer abbots and present abbot, need to ask abbot's permission to see this exclusive collection. Worths visiting burmese temples in Lampang.

    Wat Chai Mongkhon has improved a bit in the last three years, but it still resembles more a derelict complex than an active Wat. We still needed a kind Monk to open the main hall for us, so we could see this second-most beautiful rendering of the Buddha from Burma (its only competition is the rendering at the top of the Sutongpe Bridge in Mae Hong Son) This hall alone makes a quick stop and finding the monk to open it for you, worth the effort. It is a lovely sight, well worth an hour!

    This was an interesting excursion. The temple is quite old and clearly not a major tourist attraction. I loved the book exchange they had available and they clearly were interested in community development as well. This is the kind of temple worth supporting.

    This brick tower, rising over ten meters high, was part of the original city fortifications of Lampang. Built in 1808, with one side open, it has a three-story scaffold inside that was used to lift cannon and shot up to the battlement on top. The tower was probably intended as defense against a possible Burmese invasion. But the Burmese had been driven from their last stronghold in Chiang Saen in 1804 and did not march into northern Thailand again. So the tower was never used, but never demolished, either, and has been kept as part of the city’s heritage.
