Chiang Mai and Environs Sights

Wat Phra Singh

Updated 04/18/2013

Fodor's Review

In the western section of the Old City stands Chiang Mai's principal monastery, Wat Phra Singh, which was extensively renovated in 2006. The beautifully decorated wat contains the Phra Singh Buddha, with a serene and benevolent expression that is enhanced by the light filtering in through the tall windows. Note the temple's facades of splendidly carved wood, the elegant teak beams and posts, and the masonry. Don't be surprised if a student monk approaches you to practice

his English.
