Introduction

The Phra Singh Temple, the Ssangyong Temple and the Great Buddhist Pagoda Temple are called the “Three Great Temples of Chiang Mai” and are located at the western end of the ancient city of Chiang Mai. The temple was built in 1345 by King Phayu to commemorate his father. It was later expanded several times and is known for its awe-inpisiring Buddha statue. The decorations in the temple are splendid, with many exquisite wood carvings and murals narrating Buddhist stories. They are detailed, exquisite and lifelike and worthy of careful viewing. Phra Singh Temple are full of lush trees and rich with incense. There are many tourists here. If you visit here in the morning and evening during scripture time, you will see the monks chanting the Buddhist scriptures. They look very devout.
