Wat Phra Singh, Chiang Mai
(4.4/5 based on 1,600+ 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.

  • 帕辛寺位於古城內, 古城西面。 是一座金碧輝煌很漂亮的寺廟, 人流很多, 門口有很多東西可以買, 有興趣的話買來拜拜。 
  • At first you feel embarrassed that bespokoish' loud clacking shutter so intimate effect. Then you feel embarrassed that the Mummy took for a living person. Granddaddy as present.

  • The temple is richly ornamented and is amazing to see the religious making offerings in the temple. There's a lot of history out there!

  • 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.
