“Exquisite Temple in the Heart of the Old City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

I did not have long to spend in my brief tour of Wat Phra Singh, but I was impressed sheer beauty of the place. Well worth a visit, and in my case a much longer visit on my next trip to Chiang Mai.

This is very beautiful outside and impressive inside. It is set in lovely grounds with messages and sayings on the trees. You should definitely see this one.

“A Famous Temple in the City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

The best part of Wat Phra Singh is watching the locals, who understand the importance of the temple. As a tourist, you might not think much of the place beyond the beautiful gold-gilded architecture, but watch how residents revere the areas of worship. It's moving.

Also, it is a wax statue, not a very still, very old monk at the front of the room.

“Very Nice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

Its a nice temple with big statue of buddha. This is the most beautiful temple in chiang mai. The carvings on temple, door are so beautiful. Very quite and peaceful area with beautiful garden. We enjoyed seeing little young monks roaming around since its a school for monks also.
