  • Address: Chama Thewi Rd, Lamphun, Thailand
  • Hours: Open dawn-dusk
Wat Kukut, which means “wat with no top,” received its name after a golden stupa was removed from its crown more than one hundred years ago. While this beautiful example of traditional Buddhist architecture is one of Northern Thailand’s most impressive, Wat Kukut remains a quiet escape that’s rarely overrun with tourists. 

The towering structure showcases some of the area’s most well-preserved Dvaravati-period art and the temple provides shelter for about a dozen crumbling religious statues. Lucky travelers may find they are the sole visitor to this historic site, but local monks often find their way to Wat Kukut, too. Visitors can wander the peaceful grounds, where a winding river and lush garden provide plenty of space for quiet contemplation. 

Practical Info

The Wat is located on Chama Thewi Road in Lamphun. It’s easily accessible by foot for travelers staying in the central part of Lamphun, since it’s located just a short walk west. Otherwise it’s possible to hire a rickshaw for those looking to make a quicker trip.
