Wat Huay Pla Kang is truly an incredible sight to behold even at a distance – the views get more detailed as you come close to this place.
Wat Huay Pla Kang is located in Mae Yao, Thailand, approximately 7.2 kilometres away from Hotel Sooknirund. Other attractions in the area include Hall of Exhibition and Boomerang Rock Climbing and Adventure Park.
This unique temple was designed by Phra Ajarn Phob Chok – a monk. It was first built as a small monk office, which was gradually transformed into the nine-storey pagoda with the accompanying structures and statue that you see today.
It is believed that anyone who prays at this temple will be blessed with good health and fortune. As this temple hardly ever attracts big crowds, a visit to this temple for your hotel in Chiang Rai will truly feel like a blessing with its serene ambience.
Wat Huay Pla Kang has incorporated international influences in its design with particular attention to its craft and detail. Its unique architecture springs up from Chinese-Lanna style.
