Wat Doi Mae Pang (Luang Phor Waen), Chiang Mai

Wat Doi Mae Pang (near Chiang Mai, Thailand) is located about 30 minutes from Wat Pa Luang Phor Mun. It is located along the road of paddy fields.

Luang Phor Waen, a disciple of Luang Phor Mun, stayed in the temple until he passed away.

Hi, my apologies as I am also not a Thai and do not know how to go there. The previous time I went there, the abbot of a temple (www.methika.com) brought us there.
