Wat Buakkhrok Luang

Wat Buakkhrok Luang Description
The San Khamphaeng road, along which many crafts have retail outlets, also leads to Wat Buakkhrok Luang, one of Chiang Mai’s loveliest but least known temples. The wat has a wonderful teak wiharn in the Lan Na style (late 13th c.). Divided into three aisles by rows of teak columns, it houses a fine statue of Buddha in the Chiang Saen-style; the old murals and the carved doors are also superb. To the left of the wiharn stands a beautiful bot. Up until 1988, when it was destroyed in a storm, there was a replica of this temple in Phayao.
