Wat Phra Singh, Chiang Mai
Year of the Dragon: Probably the most visited temple in Chiang Mai is Wat Phra Singh. When I was there earlier in the year it was under renovation. The outside of the beautiful Lanna style Wihan Lai Kham had already been completed as you can see in this photograph. But, there was scaffolding blocking the entrance so I couldn’t enter. I believe all renovations are now over. This 14th Century temple is famous for the Buddha image Phra Singh which is revered by all people from Chiang Mai. Wat Phra Singh is an important pilgrimage site for people born in the Year of the Dragon. I urge everyone to visit this temple if you find yourself in Chiang Mai.
