Wat Umong Suan Puthatham is a 700-year-old Buddhist temple.

Wat Umong temple or tunnel temple features elaborate construction, including a massive stupa and maze-like passageways inlaid with 13th-century wall murals. The natural environment known as Jungle, which spans 15 acres (6ha), is a great spot to explore, where you may observe a replica of the Ashoka Pillar, a Lanna Dynasty monument. This temple is located near the base of Doi Suthep mountain. Many resident monks live in the stunning environment, with its vast expanse, and enjoy sunbathing in the afternoon sun while feeding the wild deer, fish, and turtles. There is a gallery of old Buddhist sculptures, such as the hungry Bodhisattva, in the temple, as well as a vibrant collection of historical art and texts.
