Nan's most famous Buddhist temple is celebrated for its exquisite murals that were executed during the late 19th century by a Thai Lü artist called Thit Buaphan.
The exterior of the temple takes the form of a cruciform bòht that was constructed in 1596 and restored during the reign of Chao Anantavorapitthidet (1867–74). The bòht exemplifies the work of Thai Lü architects, and the ornate altar sitting in the centre of the bòht has four sides, with four Sukhothai-style sitting Buddhas in mahn wí·chai ('victory over Mara' – with one hand touching the ground) posture, facing in each direction.
