Inside the grounds of this living wát near the river stands a magnificent Lanna-period chedi . The large square base contains Lanna-style walking Buddhas in niches on all four sides. The Buddha facing east is sculpted in the mudra (‘calling for rain’) pose, with both hands held pointing down at the image’s sides – a pose common in Laos but not so common in Thailand.
