Wat Loi Kroh, 600 year old temple

Wat Loikroh, ilocated on the busy street of Loi Kroh Rd, Chiang Mai. Previously known as Wat Roikoh or Hoikoh, it was built about 600 years ago, during the reign of King Kuna, the 6th monarch of the Mengrai Dynasty. At the end of this dynasty Burma captured and ruled the Lanna Kingdom. This temple was then deserted and declined Later Banhom people, a settlement near Chiang Saen migrated to Loi Kroh and started reconstrucing Wat Loi Kroh.
I enjoyed looking at all the statues placed in every area around every kind of deity in the gardens, lining the parking lot, and in from of teach of the many buildings on site. The architecture is impressive and the ,main assembly hall is huge and elegant.
The vihara (assembly building) is built in the Lanna style. In the sanctuary the Buddha statue is the Pra-Buddha-Supachok-Saree- Loi Kroa made of brick and mortar,and is lacquered and guilded. The arched entrance is decorated with stucco depicting depicting Lanna incantation so as to bring about future to anyone walking through the entrance. Two lions stand in front of the statuary, also bringing protection and good fortune.
