Wat Phra Singh, Chiang Mai

(4.4/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our custom trip planner, Chiang Mai attractions like Wat Phra Singh can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • 帕辛寺既不是最古老的寺,也不是最高的寺,却是古城内香火最旺的寺。从塔佩门沿古城主路Ratchadamnern路往西走到头便是帕辛寺。除了进入主殿需要支付20铢外,没有任何门票费用。整个寺庙金碧辉煌,在相似的泰式寺庙中还是显得与众不同的,值得一看。夜晚的帕辛寺人很少,除了三三两两的泰国人来拜佛,只有一些游客前来拍摄夜景。 
  • After you've been in Thailand for a day or two, you pretty much get the idea with the Buddhist temples. This one was just average. 
  • Too many temples "kills" visiting temples, you get tired at the end. So, focus on the top 5 of the temples to visit. It is in fact part.

  • Good place to start out Temple exploration in Chiangmai! The temple is beautiful, and the golden (actually plastic in gold color) tower just wowed us. However, you might not really need to spend 20b to go inside... its soso. Remember to try the SP chicken just around the corner !
  • The best part of temples in Thailand is that they are a living community. Monks and people that care for them live in the temple complex. It gives a more concrete and grounded feeling to the religion. This temple is no exception.
  • Very good place and it has a great history of Chiang-mai town. The hall of Tripitaka is very old but has a great cultural value.
  • This Wat is a good starting point to start a day of templehunting in Chiang Mai. Hunting is probably not a good word, als CM overflows with them. Any corner you turn, you'll find a new one (old one most of the times) and mos of them are pretty good.
  • Lovely place to visit! Well worth going if your out and about in the town.
