Attractions in Lampang 

Chaloem Phra Kiat Phrachomklao Rachanusorn

The 'Unseen' Temple in Lampang

If you were to choose only one of the attractions in Lampang then Wat Chaloem Phra Kiat Phrachomklao Rachanusorn would have to be it. Located in the north of Thailand, 112 kilometres (70 miles) from Chiang Mai, Lampang is a town where time stands still and it's here where most of the town's temples can be found. But just 54 kilometres (33 miles) from town is one of the most bewitching Buddhist temples in all of Thailand. Very few tourists get the opportunity to see this stunning site.

Lampang is known as "mueang rot ma" meaning "Horse Carriage City" and is considered by locals as the last paradise in Thailand. The town is connected by rail and a four lane highway to Bangkok and Chiang Mai, where you'll find the horse-drawn carriages in regular use as transport. 

Chaloem Phra Kiat Phrachomklao Rachanusorn

The Chaloem Phra Kiat Phrachomklao Rachanusorn temple complex is perched high on top a rocky hill in Lampang's countryside, nearly 1,000 metres above sea level, offering you a truly unique Buddhist shrine and temple visiting experience. Apart from the temple's location being the pinnacle of its emerging fame, here you'll get a spectacular and panoramic view of the Thung Thung valley below.

The White Stupas 

Attractions in Lampang 

Wat Chaloem Phra Kiat Phrachomklao Rachanusorn has long been a Buddhist pilgrimage site due to a Buddha footprint believed to have been made more than 2000 years ago. The present site was upgraded in 2004 to commemorate the late king Rama IV 200 year anniversary.

The White Stupas 

Its many structures sits on three separate tiers and requires different modes of transport in which to reach. The main temple hall is on the first tier which you can easily reach by road yourself, but to get to the second tier where the Buddha footprint sits, you'll need to take the local Songtaew taxi. Now you could charter your own Songtaew for 600 Baht for a round trip or you can hop on one with other locals and tourists for a 60 Baht round trip. To reach the top tier, you'll be required to go by foot.

The top tier is known as Doi Phra Bet and it's here is where you'll see a golden Pagoda and a small bell hall on one side. And on the other side sits a prayer hall. If you look to your left of the prayer hall you'll see many white Stupas scattered around the hillside. They are an unbelievable sight to behold and well worth the effort getting here.

The Golden Pagoda

Wat Chaloem Phra Kiat Phrachomklao Rachanusorn represents a strong religious faith that reflects in its architectural grandeur. You'll find this amazing Buddhist pilgrimage site in the Wichet Nakhon sub district of Lampang which is just off highway 1035.
