Wat Umong was built in the 14th Century during the reign of King Mangrai. It is located at the foot of the Doi Suthep mountains. Few tourists come here and, as a result, the atmosphere is suffused with a sense of Zen. At the center of the wat, there is a Sukhothai-style chedi, also called a stupa. Ancient walls surround the chedi. Buddhas of different sizes and shapes are carved into the walls, creating a spectacular sight. Surrounded by thickly wooded forests and small waterfalls, it is particularly beautiful at sunset.
