Wat Chong Kham | Lampang   

Bodh Gaya, located in the Indian state of Bihar, is where Gautama Buddha attained supreme Enlightenment.

Here in Thailand, we have another impressive Bodh Gaya replica called ‘Chedi Phutthakhaya’ – a life-size great stupa enshrined in Wat Chong Kham, Lampang – one of the four cities in the Northern River Valleys.

1-hour drive away from Lampang Airport to Wat Chong Kham in Ngao District, the Chedi can be seen in the distance given its height that rises up to 53 meters, having the same dimension as the original in India.

As it took 3 years to finish construction, Chedi Phutthakhaya is not mere a religious site only serving the purpose of worship as it integrated the elaborately carved patterns of Indian Buddhist in great details.
