Attraction Details :
Just 20 kilometers from the heart of Phayao province lies the hilltop WatAnalayoThipphayaram. The temple grounds are replete with Sukhothai-style Buddha images in a variety of postures: reclining, walking, and seated. Mythic seven-headed Nagas, or sea serpents, guard some of the cherished statues.
WatAnalayaoThipphayaram’s RattanaChedi, or pagoda, was constructed in the Indian Bodh Gaya artistic style, a fusion of Thai and Indian cultures. A nearby Chinese pavilion reveals Eastern influences, housing Guanyin Bodhisattva (a deity) and a glittering gold replica of the world-famous Emerald Buddha image. Sweeping panoramic views of the town and the Kwan Phayao can be observed from the summit.
