About the Wat Noi in Nan town

Wat Noi in Nan town

The Wat Noi is said to be the smallest temple of Thailand, and small indeed it is. The Wat Noi is in the garden of the Nan National Museum (formerly the residence of the rulers of Nan) and I thought it was the spirit house of the Nan National Museum. But the story is that the ruler of Nan had told King Rama 5 that Nan had 19 temples at that time. But there were only 18, so he had Wat Noi (Wat Noy) build (probably around the year 2416) in the garden of his residency. It is a tiny temple, only measuring 2.00 by 2.30 and 3.35 high and it stands under a beautiful big Lilavadi Tree. The Wat Noi can be visited all year around, daily from 8:00 - 18:00 and entrance is free. For more information about Nan province see Destination Travel Guide Nan province, North Thailand.
