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.

早朝に訪れると熱心にお祈りを多くの人がしています。 隣に学校があり、元気な子供たちの声も聞こえてきます。 トイレはとてもきれいに保たれています。 トイレを使用していると、きれいに保つための寄付（5バーツ）のお願いがアナウンスで聞こえてきます。 more »Many people who visit early in the morning and diligently pray. There is a school next door, and the voice of energetic children is heard. The toilets are kept very clean. If you use the toilet, you can hear the announcement of a request for a donation (5 baht) to keep it clean.
Beautiful temple complex, definitely worth a visit. Charging foreigners an entrance fee is petty - it's only 20 baht but would have donated more if not compulsory. The smaller temple behind the main one is very nice and tranquil, if you want to pray or meditate it's a better choice.
Nice to walk through, be respectful and dress appropriately. There are Buddhist monks and worshipers here. If you want to enter temples there is a 20 baht entrance fee for foreigners only. The area has quiet a few temples to look at and enter and they are beautifully decorated. Peaceful area, yet in the heart of the city. It's worth a visit if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Chiang Mai.
