Wat Nantaram Chiang Kham Teak Temple

The Wat Nantaram is a Shan-style Temple located in the central Chiang Kham District.  It is constructed out of teak wood and displays the classic Tai Yai roof architecture.  It is quite unusual as it does not follow the typical Temple style that you see throughout Thailand.  It is estimated to have been constructed around 1908.

Tai Lue Girl in Native Clothing

The little girl dressed in her native clothing is Tai Lue.  Tai Lue people now live in this part of Northern Thailand.  They originally were from China but migrated to Burma, Laos, and Thailand after the Communist regime forced them out.  Tai Lue people are also famous for their weaving and traditional clothing.

The Tai Lue is an ethnic group native to northern Thailand and parts of Laos and China. They are known for their traditional weaving and textiles and have a rich culture with unique customs and beliefs.
