Wat Phra That Sri Chom Thong Worawihan, Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand

Wat Phra That Si Chom Thong Wora Wiharn, Amphoe Chom Thong. Located on Doi Chom Thong, the temple is one of the most important sites of Chiang Mai because it houses a holy Buddha relic, believed to be parts of the right side of Lord Buddha's head. It is interesting that the relic is not buried underground, as are most, but is kept in a container in the temple and can be taken to bath for blessings.

Wat Phra That Sri Chom Thong Worawihan, Doi Inthanon National Park


Wat Phra That Sri Chom Thong Worawihan
Legend has it that Lord Buddha came to the hilltop where the temple now stands and foretold that the place would later house a holy relic. The holy relic was found in 1452 by Mrs. Meng and Mr. Soi, who built a pagoda as well as a priest's bedchamber at Doi Din Thong. The temple was therefore named Wat Chom Thong. Later, King Muang Kaew, the 4th ruler of the Mangrai Dynasty, built the main assembly hall here.
