Wat Phumin in Nan
Also famous because it is the only temple build in a cruciform and like it were on the back of 2 giants snakes (Dragons / Naga's). In the garden behind the temple is an interesting building called "Hell" (not child friendly), showing what happens to you when you are not a good person. There are local guides to explain you about the tempel, not free and not sure if they have English speaking guides. In the evening all temples in the Historic Center of Nan town are illuminated, what makes a beautiful sight. Nearby the Wat Phumin is the National Museum, Wat Ming Muang and the Tourist Information Center . Next to the temple is the Kuang Muang (City Square) where you can eat when there is the Weekend Market (WalkingStreet) in front of the temple. Read more about Temples in Nan town
