Very few people visit these little known ruins, dating back to the 14th-15th centuries. There are several structures, amongst others a main viharn and a mondop in a pond. You will need our own transportation to get there. Worth a visit if you are into history and archaeology.

Among the scattered relics of ancient Haripunchai, now called Lamphun and the first organized state in northern Thailand, one of the least visited is Wat Koh Klang in Pasang district. To reach it you go south of Lamphun city about eight km to a turnoff going west just north of Pasang city. Proceed about 20 km to Ban Bo Kaw village in tambon Ban Ruean. Wat Koh Klang is a typical modern rural temple compound, but the ruins are part of its grounds. They comprise an ordination hall, entrance gate, pavilion and, across the road, a well reserved mandap on an island in a pond, which was formed when the nearby Ping River changed course several centuries ago.
The buildings were supposed to have been originally erected in the 7th or 8th centuries, but what survive today are the restorations of the 14th-15th centuries. Residents of the host village of Ban Bo Kaw are ethnic Mon, descendants of the original Mon citizens of ancient Haripunchai. They still speak their Mon language among themselves.
