Wat Akkho Chai Khiri is located on a hill by Highway 1035 (Lampang-Chae Hom route) between Km 50and 51 on the left. There are 2 access ways: by climbing the front stairs or by car from the back.
The Lanna-style ubosot (ordination hall) and chedi (pagoda) stand close together. This temple has a reflection of its chedi like that of Wat Phrathat Chom Ping. The shadow of the chedi appears throughout a sunny day.
Inside the ordination hall is a giant standing Buddha image called “Phra Sakayamuni Khiri Akkho,” having a height of 5 Wa 2 Sok (Thai measurement equivalent to around 10.99 m).
This ancient image is most revered by the people of Chae Hom. The ordination hall is open from 7.00 a.m.-5.00 p.m. For those who are interested in local art, the temple has a bamboo candleholder of the 25th Buddhist Century, placed before the principal Buddha image, and a Lanna-style bamboo preaching pulpit can be seen at the back of the ordination hall.
