Perched aside a road running parallel to the old city walls on the west side of town is WatMahawan. The several centuries-old temple was constructed during the time of the founding queen of Haripunchai, Queen Chamthewi. Enshrined inside is a beautiful statue given to the temple by the queen - the statue of a NakProk, decorated with mythical serpents overhead. Commonly known as Phra Rot Lamphun, it serves as the model for the province’s famous votive tablets.
