Wat Phra Singh

A fine example of Lanna architecture

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3 stars

Constructed in 1385, this wat is regarded as a fine example of Lanna-style architecture. Note the twin sets of peacocks that flank the bot entrance and the white bunnies straight out of Alice in Wonderland at the back of the compound entranceway, along with the tree which has a Buddha for each day of the week standing around it. The wat once contained the Phra Phutthasihing, an important Theravada Buddha image which is now stored at Wat Phra Singh in Chiang Mai.
