“a historical temple in Nan downtown”

Wat Hua Kuang in Nan

The words "Hua Kuang" mean large open space.  The temple is appropriately named, as it is situated on a large open space in the historical area of Nan, near Hor Kham, the ancient royal palace of Nan rulers.  No evidence of its construction date has been found, only records of its restoration in 1911, ordered by a former Prince of Nan.

Other interesting features include the palace-shaped chedi, with the design of the square base matching the double-tiered topmost orbs; the bronze Buddha image in Subduing Mara (the obstructer of merit) posture; the scripture hall or Hor Trai, shaped in square structure with four gabled ends; and a pulpit with a gourd-shaped top, elaborately decorated with black lacquer and covered in gold leaves and coloured glasses.
