Wat Phra That Lampang Luang

The main attraction in Lampang, Wat Phra That Lampang Luang, is located 15 km from Lampang city centre. Wat Phra That Lampang Luang was established in the 13th Century. Wat Phra That Lampang Luang is a rare example of a fortified temple built on a small hill. Wat Phra That Lampang Luang is also notable for its well preserved Lanna style buildings.

Lampang Old Quarter

Also popular with visitors is the old quarter of the City near the Wang River around the Talad Gao Road. Many of the building here are old and made of wood. Up until the middle of the 20th Century many of Thailand’s city centres featured similar wooden buildings. A series of fires in middle of the Twentieth Century destroyed many of the original wood buildings in large Thai towns, for example as in Phitsanulok, erasing this type of architecture. In terms of the look of the old part of the city centre a visit to Lampang offers an insight into Thailand’s urban history. The city makes good commercial use of the nostalgia for Thailand’s past by holding an evening street market on the Talad Gao Road every weekend with traditional Thai products sold as souvenirs from street stalls.

Northern Side of the Wang River

On the northern side of the Wang River is a series of old temples, most notable of which is Wat Phra Kaew Don Tao, and some more notable old wooden buildings. The most famous of these stand alone private residences is Baan Sao Nak. Baan Sao Nak was completed in 1895 and the main structure sits on 116 thick teak wood posts. Baan Sao Nak is open to visitors daily from 10:00 to 17:00.
