Wat Phra Kaeo Don Tao – centuries-old temple on Phra Kaeo Road used to be the place where the Emerald Buddha was once enshrined (the same statue now installed in Bangkok).
Interesting structures include the large chedi containing the hair of the Lord Buddha, a Burmese-style mondop (religious architecture), an ancient vihan (ordination hall) housing a reclining Buddha and a museum exhibiting ancient relics of the Lanna era.
