Memories of the Wat Phra That Chae Haeng in Nan town

Destination Travel Guide Nan province, North Thailand

The Wat Phra That Chae Haeng is located a few km east of Nan town and said to be the original place where Nan town was founded. The Wat Phra That Chae is not to be confused with What Phra That Chae Kham what is in Nan town. For more information about the temple have a look at About the Wat Phra That Chae Haeng. I created Nan Memories to show you old photos of Nan province and sometimes a reproduction of that same photo nowadays. And that is how we begin here. Photo above was probably made around 1900 and photo below was made in 2016. Following are more old photos of the Wat Phra That Chae Haeng that I did find on internet, the latest photos I found are at the end. If anyone knows or has more old photos of Nan province, please contact me. For more information about Nan province see Destination Travel Guide Nan.
