Lampang, formally known as Nakhon Lampang, is the third city of Thailand’s Northern Region. Not so many foreign tourists come to Lampang. Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai and Pai are the more part popular parts of the Northern Region for international tourism. Nonetheless, Lampang does have it’s own distinct culture and history, and it’s own unique attractions.
Traditional Urban Architecture
Lampang is an interesting city which has retained a type of wooden urban architecture which was once common across Thailand until the middle of the 20th Century, when the wooden built city centre areas of many large cities and town in Thailand were destroyed by fires which coincided with the increasing use of electricity to power domestic houses.
The best cluster of these once common wooden building is to be found along the Talad Gao Road. The Talad Gao Road is also the backdrop to a Thai style vintage market which takes place in the evenings every weekend.

Wat Phra That Lampang Luang was built in the 13th Century, and is distinctive both for being a fortified temple on man made hill, and for its Lanna style buildings.
The main temple in Lampang City itself is Wat Phra Kaew Don Tao. Wat Phra Kaew Don Tao’s history prior to the 15th Century isn’t well documented and the temple may have been established as long ago as the 7th Century. Wat Phra Kaew Don Tao became well known from 1434 onward when it ended up being the accidential home of Thailand’s famous Emerald Buddha statue.
According to legend, the elephant tasked with taking the statue from Chiang Rai, where it was found hidden inside a chedi, to Chiang Mai refused to go anywhere other than Lampang. The Emerald Buddha statue then stayed at Wat Phra Kaew Don Tao until 1468 before completing the final stage of the journey in Chiang Mai.

Baan Sao Nak means ‘house of many pillars’ and this is a reference to the 116 thick teak wood pillars which support the floor of the house. All the main structural components of the house are made from wood, and the domestic appliances, furniture and kitchen ware all date back the first half of the 20th Century. The old family pcitures which adorn the walls show scenes of daily life for the house’s inhabitants during the early 20th Century.
