4.4/5 based on 1,500+ 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.

  • 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.
  • One of our favorite temples in Chiang Mai. Loved the golden stupa with elephants in back. If it rains, be sure to look for awesome reflections to photograph. :)
  • Nice big temple. I joined the prayer around 5.15 pm and it ended 5.45. Check the grounds, there is a beautiful little temple around the back to the left of the big one.
  • 20baht entrance fee but totally worth it. One of the most impressive temples in northern Thailand. If you want to see the daily ceremony with the monks come around 6pm
  • The favorite temple among tourist and locals. One of the most comfortable temple to visit.
