A lovely temple but the two pink elephants outside are not a consequence of too much Chiang beer! The narrow building beside the large ordination hall has a particularly fine standing Buddha. Its quite romantic to wander through the illuminated temple gardens at dusk.

This temple is opposite the Nan Museum and diagonally opposite Wat Phumin and is regarded by many local people as being the second most important temple in Nan after Wat Phra That Chae Haeng. However, it was certainly far from being my favourite temple in Nan and although there were some nice parts, I found the temple generally somewhat plain and run down and too simple for my taste. Most Thais though are likely to disagree with me on this and it is certainly regarded as an important place for Thais to visit!
It is an old temple, the primary viharn (aka wiharn) building (similar to an ubosot building but an ubosot is primarily for monks whereas a viharn is open to the laity as well) having been constructed in 1458. The viharn also contains a set of Lanna period scrolls containing descriptions of history, law, etc as well as the more usual Buddhist scriptures. Round to the side of the viharn is a very old stupa/chedi, meant to be from the same period as the viharn. The chedi has a series of 24 carvings around it of the top halves of elephants and this is very representative of the Sukhothai period.
As you will no doubt be visiting Wat Phumin anyway then by all means having a look inside Wat Phra That Chang Kham Worawihan as well.

Well. This might be THE Wat in Nan if you look for a strong connection between form and energy. Really special. Do not miss it.

A good example of another temple in Thailand , it was ok but probably not worth a special trip , but this was part of our tour for the day.

This is a temple that is very accessible from the city centre, being opposite the tourist office and diagonally opposite Wat Phumin. It doesn't take long to visit but is worth the effort showing both similarities and contrasts to its more popular neighbour.

The Chedi is surrounded by Elephants.
They are in excellent condition.
The abbot showed a Buddha-statue from pure Gold and
many old books on palm-leaves.

Wat Phra That Chang Kam is located Just opposite the Nan Museum. Additionally, it's not far from Wat Phumin. Nan is such a small city anyway. Visitors/ tourists can walk around while visiting their preferred destinations. Its main viharn houses a beautifully adorned Buddha image worth paying respect.
If you walk further, you will see a big chedi with some Sukhothai influence. This chedi has the fascinating attraction: the sculpted upper halves of elephants adorning around the chedi.
