Wat Min Muang This temple is located close to the Wat Phumin on Suriyaphong Road. It was constructed in 1857. Its distinguishing point is the stucco reliefs on the outer wall of the ubosot, presenting the skill of the Chiang Saen craftsmen.


The patterns are very exquisite. Within the ubosot are mural paintings depicting the lifestyles

of the Nan people by present day local craftsmen. Moreover, within the compound of the

temple stands the city pillar in a cruciform plan pavilion at its front. The city pillar is 3 metres

High.


Its base is decorated with engraved and gilded  wooden design. The top of the pillar

was engraved into 4 faces of the Brahma God, representing Phrom Wihan (Brahmavihara) 4

– the four sublime states of mind; namely, Metta - kindness, Karuna - compassion, Mudita

– sympathy, and Upekkha - equanimity.



Wat Phaya Phu Located in the Th. Phaya Phu, west from the Main Police Station, this Wat was

built during the reign of Pra Chao Phukheng and is about six centuries old. There is a big Chedi

behind the vihara whare are enshrined two ancient Buddha images. The vihara's doors are carved

with image of mythical giant guards.



Wat Phra That Khao Noi This Wat is on the top of Khao Noi hill, two kilometres west of the town. The hill

is 800 feet high. The recent temple buildings are nothing special but from the top of the hill, easily gained

access by a road, one can see, side by side with a giant Buddha statue, the entire Nan town Nan Art

Gallery Nan Art Gallery  is located on Nan River, about 20 km out of the town on the road headed

to Tha Wang Pha ( Road No. 1080 ).
