Ban Sao Nak is located at 86 on Pa Mai Road. This wooden house comprises up to 116 teak posts – ‘Sao’ in Thai, so it is called Ban Sao Nak (‘Nak’ means “many” in the local dialect). Built in 1895 by Mong Chan-ong, the founder of the Chantharawirot family, this traditional Thai teak house is a mixed art of Burmese and Lanna styles.
Its roof and structure are in the Lanna style, whereas the verandahs around the house are a Burmese reflection. The house comprises the core building and satellite small houses with 116 supporting wooden posts. In front of the house is a 133-year-old ‘Saraphi’ tree.
In the past, Ban Sao Nak was a reception house for the city’s guests, and also used for ‘Khan Tok’ northern-style receptions and auspicious ceremonies.
Visitors are welcome to see the house and collection items every day from 10.00 a.m.-5.00 p.m. Admission is 30 Baht, including beverage.
