However, some villagers call it Wat Chong Nua, as it’s located on the north of Chiang Kham County. The temple is basically for Dhamma and religious practicing.
In 1925,a wealthy elderly person named Nanta Wonganan donated his money, in order that the temple would be renovated. At the same time, a new vihara was built in the place of the old one with Kha grass roofs. The design and construction were done by Burmese craftmen.
The vihara of the temple doesn’t just look good because of its design, but also its material. Do you believe that the whole architecture is made of teakwood, one of rare and expensive wood types. The roofs consists of different levels, from low to high. The ceilings are decorated with colorful glasses.
For the principle Lord Buddha statue, it was brought from Wat Chong Mai Ta in 1933 by villagers hired by Nanta. The statue is gorgeous, as it’s made of golden teakwood. There are still some other Lord Buddha statues in the temple. Just go and see them all.
