Wat Phra That Khao Noi story

       Wat Phra That Khao Noi is located on the top of Doi Khao Noi, which is on the west side of Nan town, in the Du Tai Subdistrict, Mueang Nan District, Nan Province. Built in 1487 during the reign of Chao Pu Khaeng. The Phra That is a brick chedi with a blend of Burmese and Lanna art on the inside, which houses the Lord Buddha’s hair relics. It was renovated by Burmese craftsmen during the reign of King Suriyaphong Pharit Dej, from 1906 to 1911, and a viharn was created at the same time. Wat Phra That Khao Noi is a forerunner and another old Nan temple, likely dating from the same period as Phra That Chae Haeng. It is around 240 meters above sea level and is located on Doi Bao Noi. A 303-step Naga staircase serves as the entryway to the temple.

       The surrounding panorama of downtown Nan can be seen from Wat Phra That Khao Noi. Currently, the viewing area houses the ‘Phra Buddha Maha Udomonkol Nantaburee Sri Nan,’ which is a 9-meter-high Buddha dispensing boons on a lotus foundation atop a real gold crown. On December 5, 1999, it was dedicated to King Bhumibol. This is deserving of worship, as evidenced by the fact that many tourists have done so.
