Wat Sri Suphan is Chiang Mai’s one of the oldest temples that is said to have been built somewhere between 1495 and 1515 and has been destroyed and rebuilt several times over the years. The hand-carved silver pagoda is exceptionally stunning and the intricate details and workmanship are worth appreciating. Upon visiting, things like the ancient Buddhist scenes which depict the stories from the life of Buddha would leave you baffled. However, according to the Lanna belie, women aren’t allowed to enter the silver pagoda and the reason has been explained in a sign outside. Nonetheless, the equally magnificent red and gold shrine and everything else at Wat Sri Suphan would take your breath away.

  • Underrated with not many tourists but very nice temple. There is a stunning meditation hall, almost totally made from silverware with fine craftsmanship. The whole community around the temple has got a lot of highly skilled silverware and lacquerware artisans. Highly recommended and one of the must sees in Chiangmai.

  • Great place to learn to be silversmith. Nice artwork to be seen though the main hall of the temple does not allow ladies to get in due to that they have the buried buddha relic under the zone.

  • Unique temple because unlike others in gold or white dominating color, this temple is silver. The decor was splendid. Not a big temple but worth to visit. When I came it's the first day of Loy Krathong festival so there were some young people attraction.

  • Really beautiful wat that felt like it was on the larger side. There was a lot to see here, including the Silver Temple. You don't have to pay to enter, you just have to pay to get closer to the Silver temple. There is also a market outside to get food and drinks, if so inclined.

  • Stunning metalwork!! This is a must-see if you are visiting Chiang Mai. Within a close walking distance from the old city border. There is a gift shop that supports the temple and the monks. If you want a metal statue of Buddha, please buy from here to support the monks! Foreigners pay a small entrance fee. The only bad part is women are not allowed inside the main temple.
