Create an itinerary including Wat Phra Singh
Walk around the grounds of a 14th-century Buddhist temple at Wat Phra Singh. With impressive buildings setting an atmosphere of royalty and reverence, this site has been officially deemed a temple of the first grade since 1935. An ornate Buddha statue reputedly from Ceylon, with a complex and rather mysterious history, takes pride of place in the main temple building. Admire the delicate artistry of the many murals and the simple beauty of the quiet grounds as the monks go about their daily routine.

  • We always enjoy visiting Wat Phra Singh. Each experience is new, like it is our first time. We watch how the tourists marvel at the sights and the gleaming golden stupas with golden parasols on...

  • The Temple covers a large area, with training building, monks flats, fish pond and various Holy places. Well worth a visit can combine at the weekend with the street market, note the small gate at...

  • A stunning temple complex where every detail reveals extraordinary stories. On the walls of one of the main buildings there are some old pictures where we can see some of people selling food, eating together around the temple, as for an instance. Inside the walls of the temples there is a Cafe in the entrance selling a very cold and sweet coconut water, along with Hmong beautiful clothes.
  • Very impressive collection of Temple buildings set in tranquil grounds. Has to be one of the best Temples in the Old City. Magnificent large Gold Stupa. There are little gems of Buddhist teaching pinned to trees in the grounds. In the main building a group of monks were gathered sitting in a line and chanting. People come here to make merit and light candles.
