Wat Phra Singh

Wat Phra Singh, located on the west side of Samlan Road, within the old city walls. The main entrance, guarded by two enormous dragon-like "lions," is directly opposite the end of Rajdamnern Road and the old name called 'Wat Lichiang.' Wat Phra Singh has the most complete version of Lanna Chappel and is home to Phra Buddha Sihing, considered Chiang Mai's important and sacred Buddha mage.
