Lampang Tourist Attraction :

Baan Sao Nak

    Present on Ratwattana Road is a sprawling and beautifully conserved remarkable structure called the Ban Sao Nak.

     Believed to have been constructed in 1895 by Mong Chan Ong Chandraviroj during the reign of King Rama V, this wooden teak house is a remarkable exhibition of Burmese and Lanna style of architectures, also known as the Northern Thai style of architecture. Ban Sao Nak has become one of the main tourist attractions in Lampang.

     According to the Thai language, Ban Sao Nak means “house of many pillars”. Ban Sao Nak is an extravagant and unique blend of Burmese and Lanna architectures. As many as 116 square shaped teak pillars are present in this house, thus giving the house its present name. While the verandah around the house is designed in Burmese style, the roof, general structures and the showcase are constructed in Lanna style.

     Giving a distinct ambience around the house is the 133 years old huge Sarapee tree that is present in front of the house. Another interesting place to visit inside the house is the huge rice storage area present on the northern side.

      The house was once considered as a symbol of forest wealth present all around the province of Lampang. Ban Sao Nak was once the residence of late Khunying Valai Leelanuj, a wealthy individual who belonged to the Burmese race.  Now, this house has been converted to a private museum housing a huge collection of owner’s personal possessions, intricately carved antiques and delicately woven handicrafts. Some of these items include laquerware, silverware and ceramics. Present inside the house is a souvenir stall. Ban Sao Nak is also used as a venue for gala traditional Kantoke dinners and wedding ceremonies.

      Ban Sao Nak is open to visitors everyday from 8.00 am to 5.00 pm and admission fee is 30 baht per person.
