History of Wat Lok Moli

Wat Lok Moli is believed to have been founded sometime in the 14th Century although the oldest surviving part of the temple is its chedi which was constructed in 1527. The ashes of the Lanna King who ordered the construction of the chedi, King Phra Kaew Muang, are enshrined in its base.

Wooden Main Prayer Hall

The main prayer hall of the temple is fantastic reconstruction of a traditional wooden prayer hall of the kind which was being constructed in Chiang Mai at the time the temple was founded.

The prayer hall is almost entirely constructed of wood and features tall thick circular wooden columns supporting the roof, which run the entire length of the inside of the building to a shrine with a large seated Buddha statue at the far end from the main entrance. The woodwork inside the prayer hall is a work of art, particularly the carvings depicting important moments in the life of the Lord Buddha and the rails on each of the windows.
