4.7/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • I was on Saturday's walking street and stopped by at the temple. The silver building is very beautiful. It's quite a small temple but worth the visit if you're around there. 
  • Amazing structures, decorations and practice that is well preserved amidst an inreasingly modern and crowded neighbourhood
  • One of the most interesting temples in Chiang Mai. Definitely worth seeing at night. Very near the Saturday night market.
  • Very unique and off the beaten path. Architect on site to describe the temples in the surrounding area.
  • Discovered this on the Saturday Night market, the silver temple is lighted in color changing lights. Only men are allowed inside, but the entire area is beautiful and enchanting. Very festive, with live music and lots of lights, lanterns and incense. Small tables are available to eat your street food goodies. Bodhi trees and many monks, real and statue to be found. And WiFi!!
  • Also known as the silver temple. One of the more interesting ones here that's worth a trip to
