Wat Lam Chang Temple is at 32 Moolmuang Road, Soi7, Tambon Sriphum, Ampur Muang, Chiang Mai Province. This Temple is affiliated with Maha Nikai ( a sect of Buddhism).
When Praya Mungrai, King of Lanna, built Chiang Mai city (Nopburi Srinakornping Chiang Mai) around 1292-1296, he stayed at what now called Wat Chiang Man Temple.
The East of Wat Chiang Man Temple has a small pond and people set elephant farm by the pond and call the place " Vieng Chiang Chang".
Later on, a temple was built here to be a monument for elephants and named this temple " Wat Lam Chang Temple" as you can see the elephant statues around the temple.
