Wat Sri Khom Kham
This monastery is located in Muang District on the bank of Phayao Lake, commonly called by the villagers "Phra Chao Ton Luang" housing a Buddha image having the lap width of 14 meters, and a height of 16 meters. To get there walk out of town for about 15 minutes. It is about 100 m past the Cultural Centre.The annual temple fair take places in May.

Although best known for its impressive 17 m sitting Buddha, what really turns heads is the scuplture garden within the temple's grounds. Described as the Heaven Hell Park, the sculpture garden sits just north of the temple entrance and contains a collection of statues representing heaven and hell. In temples throughout Thailand it is not unusual to see heaven and hell portrayed in murals somewhere within the grounds, but this is the only scuplture garden dedicated to the theme we've come across. Surely designed primarily to scare children, some of hell's statues are particularly grotesque while those representing heaven are serene. Makes for an intriguing photo shoot. Aside from the garden, the Buddha image on site gives the temple its unofficial name of Phra That Ton Luang and the grounds are peaceful enough to wander around.
