I haven't seen many temples this style in northern Thailand. It has historical significance and is one of the oldest temples in Lamphun. You cam walk around the outside or go inside- where there are beautiful murals on the walls.

Our guide told us that the square chedi is the only one in northern Thailand. It is very elegant with 60 well maintained statues. The temple ground is serene with flowers in full bloom. Inside the vhan, the mural paintings tell the story of the...More

Wat Kukut is part of the Wat Chamthewi Temple. It's probably the oldest building in the compound. The chedi is unique as there are many statues standing in the many rows of alcoves. Truly a quiet wat to visit.

Not many tourists venture here- making it a gem of an off the beaten path must-see temple. Our driver-guide Sart drove around 1.30min outside of Chiang Mai. The unique stuppa -built 1235- is surrounded by 60+ Buddas and was a great diversion from the typical...More

Lamphun is famous for its unique Mon-style stupas. This temple, actually called Wat Cham Ma Taevee, has the famed Chedi Kukut. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. There is also another smaller chedi that is of interest too.

A fantastic site with two ancient monuments. It appears that not many tourists venture to Lamphun but if you are into ancient ruins and in Chiang Mai then this should be on your itinerary. I visited around 11 am and I was the only tourist....More

This little gem is a little off the track but I was determined to finally find it on my most recent tour of Lamphun. Beautiful grounds, Antiquities and low tourist volume together with relatively close proximity to town spells happiness for me! It's west on...More

A lovely little complex with gorgeous chedis and ancient structures. When I went I was the only person there besides one monk I briefly saw. Much more relaxed than anywhere else.

just a few minutes from downtown lampoon, the narrow local road, lead to this Wat Chammataewee (AKA Kukut). The temple is small and has historical value since was known one of the oldest temple in Lamphun. Like that it not so touristy. We spend half...More

We visited this at the end of the day. By this time we had been moving around a bit. Our hotel the Lamphun Will is across the road. So we spent a leisurely morning stop and walked around when the activity level at the temple...More
