Nice Pretty Spot
Nov 2019
Wats are as common as dogs, so they are hard to get excited about. Nam Hoo has ordinary enough architecture and too many tourists. It does have some history, a wide-open spacious feel and a cute mini-lake which makes it a relaxing place to hang out and not boring. So I will edge it up to four stars.

Temple with nice duckpond
Aug 2018 • Solo
This temple is average but it has a nice duckpond at the front which is where you can get a good photo. The small shrine next to the pond and the stone elephant at the entrance are other photos you can take. I went there by hired bicycle on my way to the viewpoint and the Chinese Village. There is also a Thai Yai Village fifty meters away although unless you have never seen houses on stilts before it is not remarkable, and the buildings are modern although in traditional style.There is a Yunan Village 1 km further along the road going uphill, then a Lisu Village 1.2 km away and Mor Pang Waterfall 2 km away. The road after this gets progressively steeper so if you are on a bicycle or motorbike make sure you have good brakes coming downhill afterwards especially if it has been raining.On a bicycle you can cruise along on the way back not needing to use the pedals for about 7 km on the way back into town, as this road is a continuation of Walking Street.On the way to this temple and all the other villages you will pass by Pai Hospital on your left side and shortly after there is a nice stretch of road going gently uphill with paddy fields on the left side. There is a small Thai style restaurant shack run by a young Thai lady and a grandmother in the paddyfield where you can get an ice tea or ice coffee for 20 baht or somtam,lab gai, or lab moo if you are hungry for about 50 baht. You can also get nice photos of the mountain scenery from that restaurant.

A Buddhist temple with history.
Jan 2018 • Friends
Located northeast of Pai center, this temple housed a pagoda where the relics of King Naresuan’s sister are kept. Furthermore, there is also an important Buddha statue called “Luang Por Aun Ruan” in the main praying hall.

Beautiful temple
Jan 2017 • Family
If you are a historical fan, than you would love this 400 hundred year temple which hold a beautiful yet tragic story about the Thai Princess Supankalaya. You can even light up incense at her burial which i was told by the local as the princess died in burma, the people were only able get hold of some of her hair and bones. I would recommend this to anyone who love history as much as i do.

Real haven of peace
Nov 2015
I really loved visiting this Temple. The setting is beautiful so peaceful and the buildings are set in lovely gardens. There is a small lake in front of a pagoda. The lake is well stocked with well fed fish. A site well worth a visit when you are in Pai.

Seem like the destination of Pai that everyone has to visit. Praying and donating here. The name of this temple is from the northern language means water rise up from the Buddha Image's head.
