This temple on Charoen Nakhon Road was created only in 1955 by combining two much older 18th Century temples which were next to each other, Wat Phra Bat and Wat Ming Mueang.. It is now a 'Royal' temple and is regarded as one of the most important in Phrae. Highlights include an old chedi in which is a 600 year old replica of a large Buddha footprint and the Phra Phutthakosai Sirichai Mahasakayamuni Buddha statue regarded as the main Buddha statue in Phrae There is also an unusual octagonal teak drum tower and a lovely old wooden hall in the temple grounds. The grounds also houses the Foundation for the famous Thai writer Chote Phraephunor Yakob, who was an heir of the last Rulers of Phrae.
Worth visiting because of its importance to Phrae although the temple is quite hemmed in by the surrounding buildings as it is in the centre of Phrae which makes it more difficult to fully appreciate its attractions.

The Phra Bat Refers to a footprint of the Buddha, but visually (as opposed to spiritually) it does not compare to other finer examples. I speak as a lay person. What was more interesting was the monastery school in back, where novices of all ages learn their lessons.

Just if you are interested in such kind of places. If you are bored of temples and think they are all the same, ignore it.

Superb stupa and associated buildings in an interesting comlpex and an enjoyable walk from the small city centre. Many of the buildings constructed from. Phrae is one of the small towns in the north at the centre of the historic teak industry.
