Yes. There is Wat Phra That Intr Kwaen in Phrae Province too.
The best part of the temple is the atmosphere, as it’s located on mountaintop and surrounded with forests. If you have your friends or family members who’re in a stressful situation, just take them to the temple to relax by inhaling the sweet air and have a sightseeing. Just walk carefully. Remember, this is a high area. You don’t wan to trip over something and fall down.
The highlight of the temple, the golden rock with golden pagoda on, is located on the upper part of the temple. To get there, you must use the 200-metre stairway. But it’s really worth it. The architecture is really beautiful. The rock looks it’s about to fall from the cliff, but it’s never probably will never. Take some photos of it as your memory.
Then walk on your feet to see something else too, for examples, Naga-shaped handrails, a footprint of Lord Buddha which you should worship, the tablet neat the foot print etc.
Overall, the temple is perfect for taking a walk, taking photos, having a sightseeing, and paying respect to Lord Buddha. The atmosphere around there is truely clean and amazing. It’s good for people of all ages, from kids to elderly people.
