Visiting Wat Jomsa Van in Phrae

The Wat Jomsa Van in Phrae - Thailand

This temple is very different as the temples you might have seen in Bangkok or Chiang Mai. It is located a bit on the outskirts of Phrae city and was build in 1857 (and rebuild in 1936). The temple is build in Burmese Shan style and has a beautiful interior. On the left side is a beautiful old Chedi and in front of the temple (outside the gates) is a daily amulet market where you will see old man talking about the beauty & power of their amulets. I was just informed that the writing of the name of this temple is mostly used as "Wat Chom Sawan" and that there is a great link to more photos of this temple. See Oriental Architecture
