Wat Sri Chum, LampangWat Sri Chum, Lampang (24 December, 2002)

Wat Sri Chum (GPS: 18.28443, 99.49974; Thai: วัดศรีชุม ) is a Burmese-style Buddhist temple in Lampang, Thailand. Its name means the Temple of Bodhi Trees. Being a Burmese temple, it also has a Burmese name, which is Nyaung Waign Kyaung.

Wat Sri Chum is a beautiful representation of Burmese temple architecture in Northern Thailand. It was established in the late 19th century. Its original kyaung (assembly hall) was built by skilled Burmese crafsmen from Mandalay in 1901. Unfortunately, the original building was razed in 1992, and a new copy was erected, duplicating the original based on available old photographs. The viharn has two Burmese-style pyatthat roof, which is intricately gilded.

The ubosot or ordination hall of Wat Sri Chum is also topped with the multi-tiered Burmese roof. The entrance is via an archway gatehouse flanked by chinthe.
