Visit Wat Phra Non (Phrae)

Home > To visit in Thailand > Phrae > Wat Phra Non
Thai name : วัดพระนอน
My opinion:
If you are looking for accommodation near Wat Phra Non, you can see here a list of hotels near Wat Phra Non
Like all temples in Thailand who are called like this, Wat Phra Non houses a reclining Buddha. Hidden in a small building at the back of the complex, this golden Buddha is not impressive by its size (9 meters long) but amazing for its fine decoration including the design of the clothes.

The main wihann built more than two centuries ago, is an example of the typical architecture style of Phrae. Its beautifully gold and red decorated pediment and his roofs are just magnifiscent.

Wat Phra Non is not far from Wat Luang or a list of accommodations close to Wat Phra Non

How to get to Wat Phra Non ?

As I recommend staying in this area of Phrae, or at least the surrounding area, Wat Phra Non, Wat Phong Sunan, Vongburi House, Saturday Night Market and Wat Luang will all be a few minutes walk away.
