We visited the temple during an evening trip to Doi Suthep. It is a very interesting, unusual temple located in the underground tunnel. Worth visiting.

What makes Wat Umong popular among tourists from around the world is that there are ancient brick tunnels built in there. In the tunnels, you will find old Lanna-styled buddha statues. Some Buddhists take advantage from the peaceful atmosphere in there doing a meditation. Basically,...More
