In this episode we visit Wat Ku Kao where all that is visible is a restored Chedi at the road junction of Wiang Kum Kam and the Lamphun Road. The second site shown is the double structures of Wat Kum Kam Teepram and see the amazing structures excavated between 1989 and 2002. The third site is also labeled Wat Kum Kam Teepram No1, also known as Wat Boran and also Wat Ton Koi.
