“a nice old wooden temple building, statue with mythical serphants overhead ( Nak Prok statue).”

The buildings of this temple are a mix of Lan Na and Burmese style. Wat Mahawan is to the east of the city center, outside the city walls but still within walk-able distances. It was founded in the year 657 by Queen Chamathewi, who brought a Buddha image from Lawo (Lopburi) to be enshinred here.

Wat Mahawan is just outside the city moat on the west side of town. If you are planning on walking out to Wat Chama Thewi, you'll walk right past it, so you may as well take a peek.
