in the twelfe-year animal cycle the rabbit is one of them. wat phra that chae haeng is the thai rabbit temple. people who are born in the year of the rabbit come from all over the county to pay merit at wat phra that chae heang. its a wonderful temple with a beautiful golden pagoda. in the wide temple complex you will find different buildings and ordination halls with different old and new buddha images. just sit in the main ordination hall and meditate is very inspiring. take a look at the wall paintings with some of the episodes of the life of buddha. or pay merit and pray in front of the golden pagoda. you will feel the peace that surrounds you and you will leave the temple with a good feeling.

This temple is located outside the city of Nan. It is +- 750m far from Nan River and the main bridge that will take you to the city. The first structure is the Wat, it is wide open, with some particularities like 2 emeralds made with stained glass laid on a pedestal in both sides of the Wat. The Wat has a beautiful altar with 3 big sculptures of the Lord Biddha seated, from which the biggest is at the centre. The wall behind is beautiful painted with an amazingly black colour and sparkling golden lotus flowers. I didn't have the idea of this Wat being built for a particular sign of the zodiac (in this case, the rabbit) as someone has written though. The golden Chedi is located in a separate area, and it is surrounded by stalls where anyone can buy Buddha images, candals, "phuang ma lai" to pay respect to Buddha. The Chedi is very tall and large and outside there is a house with a huge golden Buddha inside. The area of this complex is very large and there are some stalls selling foods and beverages. In a central point there is a huge tree (where I relaxed for a while...) that is surrounded with sculptures of Buddha in different positions and other Buddhism beings. The surrounding grounds were owned by the last Lord of Nan province, so you can expect to find beautiful gardens, big trees and a very well organised area. Next to the wat area there is an entrance to the building where monks are studying. I highly recommend a visit to this Wat, in case of rain, don't worry! Come!

This temple (Wat) and Chedi is a marvelous visit, but I wouldn't recommend it on a rainy day. :-) Most of the attraction of the temple and Chedi is from the outside with very little to see on the inside. There are many vantage points to take some amazing pictures of both structures and with the gleaming gold Chedi framed against a beautiful This blue sky, you will look at your pictures with fond memories.
