“People will go to visit Phrathat Doi Leng to show respect to Buddha.”

Wat Phra That Doi Leng The year of establishment was not recorded but it has been with Phrathat Cho Hae and Phrathat Chom Chaeng for a long time. According to old local people, Buddha came to visit a mountain at the southern part of Doi Tha Chakka Banphot. He arrived at dawn so that place was called Phrathat Chom Chaeng. Then he went via northern direction to Doi Tha Chakka Banphot and stayed here. 

Khun Luah Ai Gom, an attendant, gave the hair of Buddha which has become Phrathat Cho Hae nowadays. Then Buddha went to a mountain situated at southeastern direction which is higher than other mountains in Ko Sai City. He looked around and this has been used as the name of Phrathat Doi Leng nowadays. A small pagoda was repaired. It is 5 meters wide and 11 meters tall. It is the monument to remind that once Buddha has been here. It is therefore one of the important Buddhist places in Prae. It has been continuously repaired.


Walking and driving car are both available to visit Phrathat Doi Leng since the road has been repaired. The drivers must be expert in driving since it is a continuous steep way. For more information
