Amphoe Chiang Kham, Phayao
The origins of this Chiang Kham area temple remains shrouded in mystery, its year of construction unknown. The Burmese-style temple is entirely constructed of heavy teakwood, with fine fretwork and carvings at its windows, gables and veranda.
Inside is the Phrachao Saen Saeo Buddha image, also made of exotic teak. Visitors can also admire the Tai Yai style of Chedi (or relic shrines), a museum of ancient currencies, antique utensils, and artwork in the form of textiles and paintings. The paintings themselves depict episodes of the Great Birth Sermon, an essential Thai Buddhist story.
The temple stands near Chiang Kham Municipality Market in Tambon Yuan. It is open for viewing daily from 8.00 am-6.00 pm.
