Wat Si Suphan, Chiang Mai

(550+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • I was told that this temple was not as popular as the others in Chiang Mai, I don't know why as this is beautiful quiet place that is really a must to see in Chiang Mai. If you can please visit as it ...  more »
  • This temple is a must-see! It is entirely made of the silver and, for what I know, the only one in Thailand. Plus, it's free!  more »
  • This was definitely worth the visit and is such an amazing building. The way that this has been built and the thought that has gone in to developing something special has worked.  more »

  • Interesting and peaceful place. Temples are really amazing. Incredible architecture inside and outside temple premises.
  • 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
