Let’s visit another good temple in Mae Hong Son, Wat Phrathat Chom Kitti.

Wat Phrathat Chom Kitti, also known as Wat Phrathat Chom Ma Kitti was built in the year 1713, with about 11,200 square metres area. It is another temple that stores Lord Buddha’s relics inside a Lanna pagoda. The pagoda is covered in clean white color and located on a square-shaped base. You should see that for once. Or, if you have enough time, just go and pay respect for your own good fortune. It is believe that the temple has a power of protection. It has protected villagers of the town for centuries.

How to get there 

Wat Phrathat Chom Kitti is located at Ban Chom Kitti, Area 13, Mae Yuam District, Mae Hong Son Province. That is only about 2 kilometres away from Mae Sariang County.

To get there, you should start from the bridge that goes over Yuam River. Keep going straight before turning left into the Highway No.1194. Then continue straight again. You should pass the entrance of Wat Nam Dib. Then, after driving for another 500 metres, you should find your way into Wat Phra That Chom Kitti. From this point, be extra careful. The road is quite rough and steep. You don’t want to go too fast until your car lose its control and cause you an accident. So, we recommend you to book the private tour. It is a better choice and safety.
