Wat Phra That Hariphunchai in Lamphun

Wat Phra That Hariphunchai is a large Buddhist temple in the centre of Lamphun which dates back to 1150. The temple was established by the then ruler of the Hariphunchai Kingdom on the site where it is believed that the first ruler of the Hariphunchai Dynasty established her palace in the 8th Century. The Hariphunchai Kingdom was the longest surviving part of the Dvaravati Empire which ruled over much of Thailand from the 7th Century to 11th Century. The Dvaravati culture was heavily influenced by Indian culture and the Dvaravati people were instrumental in bringing Buddhism to Thailand. Wat Phra That Hariphunchai is notable for its mix of Lanna and Dvaravati styles of architecture, in particular its pyramid shaped chedi which coexists with the traditional Lanna style golden chedi in the centre of the temple complex.
