In ancient times this temple was called Wat Hoi Khor. It was constructed by the sixth King of the Mengrai dynasty, and so is more than 500 years of age. After the Burmese had been driven out of Chiang Mai towards the end of the eighteenth century, the city was deserted for twenty years. When Prince Kawila came to reconstruct the city, he brought in many people fron other regions. Immigrants from Chiang Sean settled around this temple. The chedi and wiharn were designed in local Lanna style.
