Nan and Earthquakes
Dec 2019
I had been meaning to go to Nan for two years but things never worked out. On my last trip, there was a 6.1 earthquake and some of the temples were closed.

Gold chedi
Mar 2019 • Solo
A large wat, opposite the museum and across the road from Wat Phumin, this wat's glory is the old, gold-covered chedi resting on a base of elephany statues. Not much else out of the ordinary. The chedi's very photogenic.

My 1st impression in Nan
Nov 2018 • Family
Wat Phrathat Chang Kham Worawihan in Nan,Thailand is one of my impression when I went to visit Nan province. This temple is an important landmark that you would come to see, inside of temple are decorated by Lanna style architecture. There has gold pagoda that has decorated with 24 elephants around the pagoda. The temple was previously called “Wat Luang” or “Wat Luang Klang Wiang” as it was constructed to be a royal temple. And it’s easy to visit because really near from the city centre.

Peaceful beautiful temple
Sep 2017 • Friends
I went to make a merit with my friends last few months. This was the major great temple in old town you must visit , beautifully decorated buildings and architecture but the most I love here is there was not crowded of people trying to force you buy a merit or amulet.

Gilded 15th Century Temple
Jun 2017 • Couples
This temple has a lot to offer the art lover or history buff. Its principal treasures are its chedi and the vihaan.

The chedi dates to the early 15th century and is supported by 24 elephants. Its golden spire is very appealing. It is located behind the vihaan.

The vihaan is a mixture of Lanna and Thai Lu style, with columns decorated with gold stencils and glass mosaic work. Traces of decorative stucco are also evident. The 19th century murals were sadly whitewashed though traces can still be seen. The highlight, though, is a monumental seated Buddha in the 'touching the Earth' pose.

A surprise photo shoot
Feb 2017 • Couples
Another temple with great architecture. The best time was when all the monks were having their graduation ceremony group picture. It was lovely to see them all so proud of their .achievements and not in the usual quiet prayer times.

Les elephantes sour le pagoda

The most point I love in this temple is the elephants supported the pagoda, then the pagoda had been named "Chang-Kham" ("support by elephants" in Thai)

I messed up!! This was the wat I visited - not the other one featuring a large chedi. ARGHHH!!!!
Apr 2015 • Couples
I'm sorry - I did a review on another Wat recently and thought it was this Wat in Nan, Thailand. I never visited the other one - don't remember the name of it, but I believe it was the #3 attraction in Nan. That review was meant for this Wat Phrathat Kham Worawihan. I apologize for the confusion. Impressive Chedi in the back here. Grounds are well groomed as well. It is close to many other attractions and the Tourist Information area. restaurants nearby as well and street vendors.

Grand Temple
Feb 2015 • Couples
Wat Phrathat Chang Kham Worawihan is located at the Golden Intersection of Nan. The vast temple ground indicated its importance as well as its functionality. By walking through the temple, you will feel the daily activities of the monks going through various ritual. The pagoda with the elephants carrying the loads is where the name of the temple came from. If you have time, visiting the temple by observing the activities within is another interesting experience.
