Standing on top of Doi Kong Mu hill and visible from most places in Mae Hong Son town is the Wat Phra That Doi Kong Mu, a Burmese style temple founded in 1860. The temple comprises of several structures including two chedis and two viharns. The atmosphere atop the hill is one of tranquility and serenity.
At the foot of Doi Kong Mu mountain where the Wat Phra That Doi Kong Mu is located and just after Wat Muay Tor, Wat Phra Non, literally Temple of the Reclining Buddha, housesto a colorful 12 meters long statue from 1875 in a hall with a Burmese style multilevel metal roof. But for us, the most interesting in this temple is behind this building. There you will find a long collapsed stone staircase guarded by two Singha lion statues. And at its left, there is a lovely sitting Buddha, and other buildings with Burmese style roofs and Buddha statues.
