Wat Si Suphan, Chiang Mai

(4.7/5 based on 500 reviews on the web)
Take a spiritual trip to Wat Si Suphan, a temple built in 1502 entirely covered in silver, inside and out. Today, only the boundary markers remain of the original structure, and the reconstruction has been covered in silver tiles and panels. Look for artwork on the panels depicting spiritual themes, including scenes from Buddha's lives. Stop by the silversmith school on site, and check the schedule ahead of time for "monk chat" times, when you can talk to a monk. Put Wat Si Suphan into our Chiang Mai trip itinerary planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Chiang Mai.

  • That's is really silver silver filigree lines though, but now I'm processing aluminum and stainless steel. Area in the village of silver was working tons in reality. Silver filigree systems, aluminum relief tourists for rides were exhibited. Had a temple close to the Japanese war dead enshrined this related three nearby temples seen. Anyway the relief of silver filigree fine. Around the silver alphabet initial, quite simple in the village, was working.
