Formerly known as Wat Chaloem Phrakiat Phra Chomklao Rachanuson (Wat Phrabat Pu Phadaeng) or locally called Doi Pu Yak (Doi Phrabat Pu Phadaeng), the Temple is acclaimed to be the Unseen Thailand attraction that encompasses steep rocky terrain and a golden pagoda built on the top of a high hill.
It is located near Chae Hom over 60 km drive from Lampang City and rapidly becoming Lampang’s most famed destination. The site is truly exceptional and the view from there superb. The temple is set on top of a rocky hill in the countryside. The current complex was upgraded in 2004 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of King Rama IV’s.
At the pagoda’s peak is installed a sacred Buddha’s Footprint. Tourists can drive and park at the front of the temple at the lower level. To get to the upper part on the mountaintop, they need to drive for about 1 kilometer then walk for about 1 kilometer as well.
