Wat Sri Suphan was originally built around 1500 as the main temple for the silverworkers village. Time after time, parts of the temple were repaired with silver. It was not in 2008 that it was decided to completely cover its ubosot with silver. The interior of the silver temple is very interesting with some beautiful engravings but it is unfortunately forbidden for women to enter because of old Lanna rules.
The temple houses a small silver workshop open to the public. You can attend a workshop there but you must call to book 24 hours in advance (Tel: 089 432 2594 or by LINE gmclub). On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays evenings, there is a monk chat (like in other Chiang Mai temples such as Wat Chedi Luang or Wat Suan Dok). Then there is a meditation session for everyone. It seems that there are now 200 THB to pay to participate but to check.
Chiang Mai Silver Temple is located right next to the street where the Saturday Walking Street takes place, I advise you to go there, it stays open late these evenings and is beautifully lit. ANd every Saturday night starting at 7.30 pm, there are several buddhist ceremonies and animations in the temple.
If you want to attend a sculpture on metal workshop, you must book at least the day before (Tel: 089 432 2594 or by LINE gmclub or by going to the temple). It costs 200 THB per hour per person and each workshop lasts from 1 to 3 hours depending of what you want to do. The temple is located just outside the central square of Chiang Mai.
