Wat Rong Ngae in Pua
The Wat Rong Ngae is in the village Ban Rong Ngae on the outskirts of Pua town, about 60 km north of Nan town. This temple is estimated to be build around 1767 by the rulers of Muang Rin, what would later become the Nan Kingdom. The village Ban Rong Ngae was (and still is) a settlement of Tai Lue ethnic people. The temple has been build in the so called Tai Lue style with the low double roof. In 1927 the land was royally granted to the temple. Of course the temple has been renovated in the time passing but the temple retained its original style. Inside the temple there is a huge sitting Buddha image. Next to the temple is a newly build Viharn with mural paintings.
