Visited Scorpion Temple Of Wat Phra That Doi Wao - Mae Sai - Thailand (Part 2/2).

In the past, the King Wao who ruled Yonok Nakorn built this place in order to store Buddha’s hair in BE364. Wao is a Lanna language which means a scorpion. Phra That has been deteriorated over time, yet it has been repaired many times also. During the major restoration, Buddha relics had been found and put in the pagoda. Also, it had then been placed in the cornerstone covering with the pagoda as can be seen nowadays. Around Phra That area, it is decorated with shady trees and pleasant pathway.
The Big scorpion statue (Wao) and another highlight is Paichayon Castle which has been constructed in Lanna style for the purpose of reminiscing the good and worshipping Indra.
