Attraction Details :

Nestled on the Nan River bank is Wat Tha Thanon, home of the province’s signature Buddha image, Luang Pho Phet, which has a rare and special history of its own. According to records, a local abbot,returning from a day preforming religious rituals, sighted a Buddha image’s head emerging from a busy anthill. The entire Buddha image was subsequently unearthed, named Luang Pho Phet, and it was enshrined at Wat Tha Thanon. After a royally-requested tour in Bangkok, it was returned to its home in Wat Tha Thanon. The Chiang Saen-style, bronze-cast statue depicts its subject seated in the diamond posture. 

The temple is located on Tanon Kasemrat, Tambon Tha It, Amphoe Mueang, in Uttaradit.

Visitors may tour the location from 6.00 am-5.00 pm daily.
