Wat Mahawan

On the road parallel to the old city wall to the west of town is Wat Mahawan, an old temple built since the times of Queen Chamthewi. Enshrined here is a Nak Prok statue (statue with mythical serpents overhead) which was brought to the temple by the Queen. Commonly known as Phra Rot Lamph, it serves as the model for the famous votive tablet.
