Murals of Wat Phumin was under a major restoration in the period of Chao Ananta Worarithidet in 1867 (the end of the reign of King Rama IV), taking up to 7 years. There are many interesting murals such as Pu Man and Ya Man, which are words for calling Tai Lue men and women in the ancient time, whispering a conversation each other.

This painting has been hailed as a great beautiful painting of Wat Phumin so that it is known as…World’s Famous Love Whispering. There is also a painting of Yu Khuang Tradition of Tai Lue. In the past, parents would allow young people to meet each other at the balcony in the evening while the woman was spinning cotton thread or “Yu Khuag”. If the woman said yes, the wedding ceremony would be held. Each painting indicates the way of life of Nan people, trading in the community, young women weaving with a native loom. Outside the balcony, there is a small building where the clay pot is placed called “Ran Nam”, while the young men have a hairstyle called Lak Chaew or Mahad Thai.

At Phumin temple, it’s not only a religious place, but it also has a mural named ‘Grandpa Man and Grandma Man’ . It’s believed that if you confess how you love your girlfriend/boyfriend/husband/wife with this mural, your love will be eternal.
