Wat Phra Singh, Chiang Mai

Walk around the grounds of a 14th-century Buddhist temple at Wat Phra Singh. With impressive buildings setting an atmosphere of royalty and reverence, this site has been officially deemed a temple of the first grade since 1935. An ornate Buddha statue reputedly from Ceylon, with a complex and rather mysterious history, takes pride of place in the main temple building. Admire the delicate artistry of the many murals and the simple beauty of the quiet grounds as the monks go about their daily routine.

  • If you love Chiang Mai temples like I do, this is a must see. Glistening golden Wat and beautiful grounds. Beat to go early to avoid the crowds, but if you cant...anytime will work, small entrance fee and food on the grounds. Please be respectful as with all temples, people do come to worship.
  • If you are planning to visit the temple don't forget to go to "Wat Phra Singh". It's easy to travel and near walking street on weekend. You will see the big Golden pagoda and beautiful temple with Lanna architectures.
