Wat Sri Suphan - The Breathtaking Chiang Mai Silver Temple


Wat Sri Suphan - The Breathtaking Chiang Mai Silver Temple



Crafted out of silver and aluminium, the Silver Temple sits within the silversmith district and showcases the intricate work of the local people. the "Silver Temple" here is probably the single most beautiful building of around 20 Temples I've seen in Chiang Mai so far. Amazing detailed metalwork. For some reason whilst women can't go inside this building, they can visit the second main assembly hall and tradition temple building. There are a number of craft stalls on this site and shrine "Elephant Buddha Statue" where offerings were being made. I was fascinated by this small silver temple and its detailed craftsmanship. Although it is outside the walls of the old city, it is worth the walk. Unfortunately, women can not step inside the temple but the exterior is more impressive anyways.
