Wat Phrathat Pha Ngao, in Chiang Saen district, is an important old temple in Chiang Rai Province, in Northern Thailand. There is a chedi called Pha Ngao standing on a huge rock in the temple compound. This is how the temple got its name which means a rock providing shade. Beside the chedi itself, other things of interest include the Seven Spired Pagoda on the hilltop, a Viharn housing an image of Luang Po Pha Ngao and a golden Lanna-style teakwood building.
