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.

  • A very clever built Temple, to this one, but please note that only men are allowed to enter the inside. And the inside is so may be even more beautiful than the outside.

  • Beautiful Wat. Women aren't allowed in the silver temple due to their rules but you are able to take photos and videos inside to share. The artistry is amazing and there are little humorous things like the avengers and aliens in random places.
  • Just when you think human beings have exhausted their creativity, another work of art stuns the senses again. Unfortunately, tradition excludes women from this temple, but it is stunning nonetheless.
  • Interesting temple. Their Saturday evening market has the best prices by far
  • Come across this at night before Saturday night market. Amazing!! Silver temple
  • Very unusual and impressive small temple. Worth a visit.
