This ancient square-based pagoda is 32 meters wide and 45 meters high. It is one of the most complete and most beautiful pagodas to be found in the region. Incorporating art from the Lanna, Lan Xang and Ayutthaya periods, it is believed to have been built during the 15th-16th century. It is the most significant part of a set of ruins that remain in the area.

Moreover, important antiques discovered both inside and outside the city moat have been collected at the temple, such as sandstone boundary markers.
