Wat Haripunchai temple in Lamphun, an ancient city that predates Chiang Mai by several hundred years, houses what is believed to be the largest bronze gong in the world.
Little remains of the fortifications that once protected the Haripunchai kingdom city, but the working monastery that bears its old name is worth a look.
