We happened on this wat by accidence but it is definitely worth a visit. The area is very tranquil and the details on the silver decorations are very beautiful. Unfortunately however, being a woman I was not allowed inside the wat itself.

I spent six weeks here in late 2015/early 2016 studying "aluminium embossing". In the midst of the Wua Lai community this smaller wat complex should not be missed because of the Silver Temple. The walls (inside and out) are covered with some of the most extraodinary embossing metal work in the world. The embossed panels are up to ten feet... More

We found this temple on recommendation and really liked it. When looking around we met the architect of the temple telling us about how they make the silver plates and why it was built. As a woman, I could not enter the temple so I can not comment on the inside.

This was probably my favorite temple we visited, not only because of the beautiful and unique temple but also because of the many "community outreach" programs they have. We loved Monkchat, where we got to talk to a group of young monks for 2 hours and ask them questions about their lives. We also took a meditation course and carved... More

This Wat is situated near the Saturday walking street and in the old silver quarter. If you walk around nearby you'll see the old metal workshops still in use. Famously due to its location several of the temple buildings are covered in the silver metal which creates a wonderful and unique effect. The grounds are smaller than most temples and... More

This is a great temple to visit because it's not too big, but there are lots of interesting structures. It is also a lively temple, so you don't get the feeling it's tourists only. Also it's conveniently located to the Saturday market, so you can do both at the same time. Moreover, on Saturday, there is a small night market... More

This temple is conveniently located near the Saturday walking street. It's very beautiful at night. There were a few food stalls on the temple grounds for a cheap meal.

I walked here one quiet morning and was the only tourist on the complex. It was perfectly serene and contains one of the most unique temples I saw while in Thailand. If you're in the old city and feel like going for a little walk, swing by here.

We found this temple quite by accident. We were strolling down the Saturday Walking Street on an off-day when we saw the top of a temple peeking out from behind some guest houses. We're really glad we decided to investigate because this is certainly a hidden gem in Chiang Mai! It's outside of the city center, so it's not really... More
