Wat Phra Singh
Wat Phra Singh or full name: Wat Phra Singh Woramahaviharn
   
Location  
Wat Phra Singh is located in the western part of the old city centre of Chiang Mai, which is contained within the city walls and moat. The main entrance, which is guarded by Singhs (lions), is situated at the end of the main street (Rachadamnoen road) of Chiang Mai. The road runs east from the temple, via Tapae Gate, to the Ping River.

  Notability
The temple houses an important Buddha statue: the Phra Buddha Sihing which gives the temple its name. There are two more Buddha statues in Thailand which are claimed to be the Phra Buddha Sihing: one is housed in Wat Phra Mahathat in the city of Nakhon Si Thammarat and another in the Bangkok National Museum. Every year, during the Songkran festival, the statue is taken from Wihan Lai Kham and carried through the streets of Chiang Mai in a religious procession during which the spectators honour the statue by sprinkling water over it.

This lovely temple dates from 1345 and is one of the focal points of Songkran festivities each April 13-15
when people bathe the revered Phra Buddha Sihing image.
