Situated 26 kms.
south of Chiangmai is the ancient city of Lampoon, known in historic
times as the Kingdom
of Hariphunchai. An ancient Mon kingdom,
it was founded in 660 and is the oldest existing city in the kingdom.
As you enter the city, the remnants of the old fortified city
walls and the surrounding moat, constructed in the 16th century,
are still evident. See the ancient temple Wat
Prathat Hariphunchai with its golden stupa.
The temple grounds contain two impressive chedis, the taller of
Dayalat, stands a majestic 51 meters high.
Take time to explore the teak-wood library which houses many ancient
Pali scripts. There is an old Lanna style pagoda and a huge call-to-prayer
gong. Visit Wat
Jammathevee, named after Queen
Jammathevee, the first ruler of Lampoon.
The style of the pagoda is unique with niches containing Buddha
images. It’s quite different when compared to other temples
that you normally come across. Proceed on to Pasang village to
feel and sense the atmosphere of a small northern community. Pasang
is well known for its cotton weaving industry and its lovely,
demure ladies. Return back to Chiangmai
