Built in 1904 during the reign of King Rama V by Burmese loggers who came to work in the teak logging company Bombay Burma Company, Wat Sri Rong Muang is the temple with the most beautiful teak wood ordination hall in Lampang. At the time, the city was the center of the teak trade. The multi-level typically Burmese roof is supported by round pillars decorated with colorful mosaic and gold motifs. Some parts are inspired by a Mandalay castle, the whole interior of the temple being richly decorated with Burmese art. A Buddha carved by a Mandalay artist in teak wood sits in the vihara. You can also recognize the Burmese style of this temple by the perforated metal that adorns the eaves.

To the right of the viharn, there is a large tree surrounded by statues of Buddha and a sitting Buddha image and a little chedi.
