Out of all the temples I saw while in Thailand, I think this one ranks as one of my favorite. There were relatively few people and it was incredibly unique. You could walk around, watch and talk to the various metal workers, then see their amazing talent put to use in the building of the temple which was magnificent. The... More

Well worth the visit, a change from all the gold and mosaic temples you see everywhere. In a quiet part of the old city.

Also known as the Silver Temple, this is beautiful by day, but when it is illuminated at night (best maybe Saturdays) it is absolutely stunning. Not to be missed, especially if you are going to the Saturday Walking Street in Wulai Road.

We visited this Wat at night and what a beautiful, indeed magnificent sight it is. The highlight of visiting this Wat was the chat we had with one of the monks. After our chat the monk blessed us for luck and good fortune, and tied Sai Sin, (string bracelets) on our wrists. Don’t be afraid to greet the monks in... More

An unusual temple, with one hall in the process of being covered with panels of silver metalwork (we're not sure that it's real silver, because it doesn't seem to tarnish). Not surprisingly, it's in the metal-working district of Chiang Mai, and right on Wua Lai Road where the Saturday night walking market is held. We therefore visited the temple mid-afternoon... More

A quiet relaxing Wat. Very small but cool they have made it from silver. Dont buy any silverware from the silver streets on the way there its fake and expensive. If you really like wat's I would go here but they are all fairly similar albeit this one slightly different.
