Visiting the Wat Phra Haripunchai in Lamphun

Temples in North Thailand
Wat Phra Haripunchai in Lamphun, North Thailand

While on our way to Chiang Mai we did visit the Wat Phra Haripunchai in Lamphun. This is about 20 km south of Chiang Mai city and about 3 km from the highway. It is a 12th century old temple build in different styles. Lamphun itself is a lovely little old town with history and culture. It makes a great day trip from Chiang Mai, or like we did perfect for a stop on your way to Chiang Mai.
