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.

  • This temple is nice. It is easy to visit because it is located in the city centre. I went late in the day and there was little world.

  • When you see these temples and Buddas you are amazed at the ability of the people that designed and built them. Altough there a lot of these sights each one is different to the last one you saw.  more »

  • 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.
  • The second best tempel. A must to see place in chiang mai in row with cedi lang near by and doi suthep on the hill. All three a must do see place
  • Nice temple. Especially liked the small woods with the Dhamma signs. Nice place to relax in the shade.
  • Good to see while you are here. Wome great stuff. Only complaint i have is they charge you to see the inside of the temple (which is not that big).
