We were there Many times. Especially when there is a full Moon we went to pray and join the ceremony by walking three rounds around the Pagoda. We can see a beautiful golden Pagoda under the Moon.

This Temple is very large, with beautiful gardens and many lovely buildings and statues. We visited on a rainy day, but still enjoyed wandering the grounds. As with most Temples in Lampang, the history is amazing. Worth a visit in any weather!
