Visit Wat Chom Sawan (Phrae)

g_translate Thai name : วัดจอมสวรรค์
reviews My opinion: star
Wat Chom Sawan
Wat Chom Sawan Temple
Wat Chom Sawan Prae
Built from 1900 to 1912 during the reign of Rama V, this temple is located just outside the skirt of the city and is in Burmese architectural style. Fully teak ceilings with beautiful carved and painted in red and gold, the temple seems a little abandoned. Very few people come to pray here.

In addition to this distinction of being wooden built and a in slightly different style than the other temples in the city, it's not the most interesting temple in Phrae. On the left side, there is a brick stupa.

So as for me visiting this temple is not essential when you stay in Phrae.
