Create an itinerary including Wat Phra Singh
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. By using our Chiang Mai trip itinerary builder website, you can arrange your visit to Wat Phra Singh and other attractions in Chiang Mai.

  • Amazing temple to visit and take a round and catch some good photos. You will find monks and can buy some souvenirs. Pay a visit 😊

  • It is so cool that I had a view on this temple from my hostel's room! The site is gorgeous but you cannot go up the temple in the back unfortunately. One thing that I regretted missing was the monk chat. This is an opportunity to talk to a monk and ask all your questions. From what I heard is that they speak English very well.
  • One of my favorite temple, old style Lanna with fully of sense of the historical time. Plenty of the things to see such as buddha, pagoda. The temple just locate at the Sunday market, parking available sometimes if you come to the market with a car. By far overall here is superb and I love this temple.
