For Buddhists, there are several temples presenting the art of Lan Na and Lan Chang. You can pay respects to the Lan Chang Buddha statue made of carved wood at Sri Khun Muang Temple. The pulpit of this temple is also carved and gilded. Not far from the first temple, there is another called Pon Chai Temple. Here you can experience the combination of Lan Chang and Rattanakosin art. The local culture of Chiang Khan has been preserved until the present day. The local people wake up very early in the morning and stand in line to give alms to the Buddhist monks.
