Wat To Phae

Buddhist Temple in Khun Yuam

About 6km to the west of Khun Yuam, the atmospheric Wat To Phae sits alongside a rural stream and boasts a Mon-style chedi (stupa) and an immaculate Burmese-style wí·hăhn (sanctuary). Inside the latter, take a look at the large, 150-year-old Burmese kalaga (embroidered and sequined tapestry) that’s kept behind curtains to one side of the main altar.
