Although the legend can’t tell the exact date of the establishment, but people believe that it was probably built somewhere around the period of King Saenmuang, who was the 7th king of Chiang Mai.
Wat Phra That Jom Mon temple started from being an ordinary monk house and abandon temple before being renovated until it is a legal temple now, looking so beautiful. Everything is mostly decorated with art of Chinese, Thai, and Lanna. Therefore the temple is contemporary and interesting.
