Wat Uppakhut

Wat Uppakhut

Location : Mueang District 

Wat Uppakhut is on Tha Pae Road, Chang Klan Sub-district, Mueang District, Chiang Mai. The temple was built with the permission of the Sangkha Actof 1902 (B.E. 2445). The Uppakhut history book stated that the temple was built by a couple who were very poor. The two made a living in farming and small trading. One day, they offered part of their little income to a novice monk who happened to be Phra Uppakhut in disguise. Phra Uppakhut was a holy noble Sangkha who received a prophecy from the Buddha for him to represent him and care for the religion. Phra Uppakhut lived his nirvana life at the bottom of the sea. Every holy day on the full moon he would disguise himself as a novice to accept food offerings at dawn. Whoever had a chance to offer him food would prosper and become a rich man.
