This temple is not easy to get to but well worth a visit. The new temple sits close to the entrance the beautiful very old temple towards the back but closed to the public inside. I recommend visiting this site on a cooler day if possible.

Huge temple compound! It is worth the trip from Lampang, although it can be a bit of a hassle to get there. Make sure you see the camera obacura

The huge parking lot means it is a very important temple. Altough very serene, it is full of suprises (two camera obscuras)... it is worth the trip from Lampang. We hired a songtaew for a half day (600bath).

A beautiful temple very different from those in Ayutthaya and Sukhothai. We were lucky as it wasn't crowded at all which enabled us to wander around and admire the buddhas and the buildings. As in all temples in activity, it's nice to be able to meditate for a while during a busy trip.

Lampang Luang Temple Number one temple of Lampang city. This temple is a very Charming Architecture Temple with a museum showing antique weapons, old currency, scripture, and antique wares. Also you can see an upside down pagoda inside the temple as well.

The Temple houses many beautiful buildings and statues. It also houses a Museum of War. It is well worth wandering through the lovely grounds and absorbing the history and culture of beautiful Lampang. There are descriptive plaques strategically placed through the grounds (in English) detailing the history of the Temple.
