A short distance from Lampang town is Wat Chedi Sao set amid farms and rice fields. The name literally means “The Temple of Twenty Chedis” (pagoda) and one look at the 20 stupas in the temple courtyard makes it easy to understand the origin of the name. The beginning of the temple itself is unclear.

A legend recounted at the temple says that two monks from India came to the area about 2,000 years ago to spread the teachings of Buddha.

A local prince was impressed and asked each of the monks for ten hairs. He then built the temple, placing one hair in each chedi.
