Wat Muen San in Chiang Mai, Thailand


Wualai Road (or Wua Lai Village) is known for its skilled silversmiths. Here you can find many delicate handmade items ranging from jewelry to bowls to various pieces of lustrous silver artwork. You can also find Wat Sri Suphan, also known as the “Silver Temple”. But, here you will find that there is more than just one silver temple off Wualai Road.

Wat Muen San is also covered with ornate silver alloy relief work depicting religious figures, floral patterns and scenes from the life of Buddha. The temple also houses a Silver Museum and workshop. The local Wua Lai community makes merit by embossing silver pieces for the temple.
