Wat Phra That Khao Noi

Wat Phra That Khao Noi is located on the top of Khao Noi hill, two kilometers west of the town. The hill is 800 feet high. The temple has a white chedi and a huge walking Buddha statue overlooking the hill below. The recent temple buildings may look nothing special, but from the top of the hill, easily accessed by a road, one can see, side by side with a giant Buddha statue, the entire Nan town. The view at sunset is magnificent.

Details: The temple is open daily from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

How to get there: Wat Phra That Khao Noi is situated at Ban Kaem, Woranakhon sub-district. The temple is on Route 1025, about 2 kilometers west of the town and up a steep hill.
