This large, brash Chinese temple on the southern shore of Nong Bua attests to the wealth of the local Thai-Chinese merchant class. At its heart, the Pu-Ya Shrine houses small images of the Chinese gods Pu (Grandpa) and Ya (Grandma).

In front of the temple is the gorgeous Udon Thani Thai-Chinese Cultural Center . It features a large garden and the Moral Museum , which has excellent displays about the history of the Chinese Community in Udon Thani, Chinese culture and Confucius. The Pu-Ya Chinese Orchestra plays Wednesday and Friday from 5pm, and a smaller group performs Saturday and Sunday at 1pm.
