Wat Luang According to legend, Wat Luang was founded in 829 by Phor Khun Luang Pol, at the same time Lampang itself was established. If there is any basis to the legend, the current buildings are not original. The earliest

existing structure is  the octagonal  Chedi, known as the  Phra That Luang Chai Chang Kham The

GreatRelic Chedi  Supported By Elephants, was last rebuilt in  1336 on top of an earlier form. The

viharn ubosot, dating from 1872, is the largest hall on the grounds of the Wat. It contains an image

of the Phra Chao Saen Luang Buddha that is a bronze replica of the original gold statue plundered

in 1902 during an uprising of the local Shan population. Likely as a result of this theft, the open front

Portico of the viharn-ubosot was bricked over with laterite to prevent easy access to the interior

without permission.To the west of Wat Luang is Wat Phra Non near the site of the old city walls. Some of the architectural works include the Chiang Saen-style Ubosot with narrow openings to let in light instead of normal windows. Inside is a nine metre-long plaster Reclining Buddha.


Wat Phra Bat Ming Muang, is located on Charoen Muang Road near the provincial hall. This temple

was built at the beginning of the Rattanakosin Period, by combining two ancient temples Wat Phra

Bat and Wat Ming Muang. The holy objects of the temple are Phra Phutthakosai Sirichai

Mahasakayamuni, a famous Buddha image of Phrae, a replica of the Buddha's footprint and an old

pagoda, Phra Chedi Ming Muang. The City Pillar Shrine of Phrae  features an inscription stone with

ancient Thai scripts of the Sukhothai period describing the construction of a temple in the town.
