Nan Province-Part4-Temples

There is no shortage of beautiful Temples in Nan. I know I can't do the Temples justice as I would need to dedicate weeks to visiting and photographing all of them, however, a few of the Temples that I visited include Wat Phumin, Wat Phra That Khao Noi, Wat Ming Muang and Wat Si Phan Ton.

WAT PHUMIN:

This is the most famous Wat (Temple) in Nan due to the very distinct murals painted on the walls by Thai Lue artists depicting everyday life. You will notice most of the merchandise you see around the Province is based on one particular painting - of a man whispering into a woman's ear.

WAT PHRA THAT KHAO NOI:

A historical hilltop temple with stunning views and definately worth going there for sunrise...and sunset if you love them as much as I do! Try walking up all the steps but don't worry if you're not up for it, you can drive to the top and park :)

WAT SI PHAN TON:

Or as I call it the "Very Gold Temple". Incredible sculpted and carved details adorn this temple.

WAT MING MUANG:

Clearly this would be the opposite of the above - the White / Silver Temple, yet again with incredible detail in the exterior sculptures. In addition, beautiful murals cover the walls in this Temple.
