Pong Yang Khok Temple 

Settled in Hang Chat district with a long history this temple has some interesting attractions: 

Wiharn Chamadevi: Built in 710, during the queen’s reign, this wooden structure features a three-layered roof formally made of wood shingles, but now replaced with earthenware. Inside the wiharn is enshrined the mondop arch of the principal Buddha image called Khong Phra Prathan. The pulpit was made of gilded and lacquered wood in a floral design. 

Wall Paintings behind Principal Buddha Image: Depicting three Si Maha Bhodi trees and deities holding Chatra umbrellas and floral bouquets. 

Floral Pattern Painting: Each picture drawn into different flowers, leaved and branches considered to be the oldest of its kind in the north.
