Wat Phra Singh

Home to a revered Buddha image

On your right as you enter the compound is the exquisite scripture library, one of the finest examples of Northern Thai architecture, consisting of a wooden building on a tall base that is surrounded by stucco angels.

The main viharn is large and imposing, but of more interest is the smaller viharn, set back to the left of the main building. This is the Viharn Lai Kham, which is definitely worth a look inside after appreciating its gleaming bargeboards and beautifully-carved gables. The building contains the Phra Sihing, the city’s most highly revered Buddha image, and some fascinating murals depicting local lifestyle in bygone days.
