About Travel to Lamphun
Lamphun is a small town, with a population of around 15,000 permanent residents, which has a long history, and two very significant temples: Wat Phra That Hariphunchai and Wat Chammathewi. Not many foreign visitors choose to come to Lamphun. Chiang Mai is not that far away and has more on offer to visitors than Lamphun. Nonetheless, Lamphun is an interesting town to visit particularly for anyone with an interest in Thai history.
History of Lamphun
The town was founded in either the 6th and 7th Century and is closely associated with an important figure in the history of Thailand, Queen Chammathewi of the Haripunchai. Queen Chammathewi ruled over a sizeable kingdom in the 8th Century and Lamphun was her capital. The remains of Queen Chammathewi are believed to be entombed in the magnificent Dvaravati style chedi at Wat Chammathewi. The Dvaravati were an Indian influenced group that ruled over much of South East Asia during the 1st Millennium although there are relatively few remaining examples of their culture.
Wat Phra That Hariphunchai
Lamphun’s major tourist attraction is Wat Phra That Hariphunchai, which is believed to have also been founded in 1150 by one of the successors to the Kingdom established by Queen Chammathewi, although subsequent regimes significantly altered and enlarged this temple. The two most striking features of Wat Phra That Hariphunchai are its two chedi towers. The larger of the two, a golden chedi, features on the reverse side of the 1 baht coin. The other, constructed in the 15th Century, is a similar to the chedi at Wat Chammathewi with a distinctive Dvaravati design. The large assembly hall at Wat Phra That Hariphunchai was constructed in 1925 and features an impressive 15th Century statue of the Lord Buddha and a noteworthy series of wall murals depicting major events in the life of the Lord Buddha.
