Attraction Details :
Situated in the heart of the town, Wat Phra That Hariphunchai was built during the reign of King Arthitayarat, a descendant of Queen Chamthewi some 800 years ago. One of its most noteworthy landmarks is the 46-meter tall golden Chedi or Buddhist stupa, whose present features are the result of careful restoration work in 1443 by a Chiang Mai king. The temple has long been regarded as an important place of Buddhist worship.
Other architectural works include the temple’s ancient-style brick arch, which is adorned with fine designs, and the pair of sculptured lions at the door. There is also a square-shaped Chedi and a Khmer-style Buddha statue.
The temple, located in Amphoe Mueang’s Tanon Intha Yongyot, is open from 6.00 am-6.00 pm. The entrance fee is 20 baht. Visit www.hariphunchaitemple.org or call 0 5351 1104 for more information.
