Wat Ming Mueang Temple - Review

Wat Ming Mueang temple was considered to be established by Chao Nang Talamae Sri, wife of King MengRai and daughter of a Burmese King from PhaKo city (Hong Sao Wadee). This temple was a personal temple of Phra Nang Uao Ming JomMuang, King MengRai’s mother. With a structure that showcases a blend of Tai Yai and Lanna Art, this temple showcases a number of antiques for study into the indigenous culture. The ceiling hiding place is decorated by the picture of swans in Triphum and Bali style. This structure houses the famous gilded stucco Buddha image, called LuangPhorPhra Sri Ming Muang. There is also a magnificent sacred well, named “Bor Nam Chang Mup,” since its Kong-style roof arch is adorned with statues of couching elephant with its face to the east. In the back is a Lanna-style Chedi, called “Phra That Ming Muang,” ornamented with gilded tierred umbrella in Myanmar art. The relics of Chao Nang Talamae Sri, received from Somdet Phra Nyanasamvara Somdet Phra Sangharaja, are housed inside. This temple is a must visit to understand Thailand’s native faith, religion, culture and art.

Wat Ming Mueang Temple, Chiang Rai Reviews

  • Directly attached to the largest market in Chiang Rai, this is a very active temple. Seemingly also making an income from functioning as a parking lot for the market vendors and patrons.

  • nice old temple in the center of chiang rai. a bit run down

  • 800 years old, not the fanciest or most popular but historically, extremely significant

  • One of the city old temple. Recently renovated on the east side of the temple.

  • Lovely Burmese style wat. Centrally located. Worth a visit.
