Temples of Thailand - a photographic journey
Bangkok Area Provinces: Central North North-East West South East
Wat Lai Hin Kaeo Chang Yuen
Wat Lai Hin or Wat Lai Hin Luang is also called Wat Sela Rattana Papphataram. It is located not far from the famous Wat Phra That Lampang Luang and is a very tiny temple. The beautiful gate, viharn, cloister, chedi and ubosot are all very small but nevertheless beautiful examples of Lanna architecture. The Phra Viharn had been built by Chiang Tung school of Lanna-style and contains an old Lanna-style statue called Phra Pratan Wat Lai Hin Luang. We visited this important temple during the Thai New Year festivities, which brought lots of people to this otherwise quiet site.
