Hands-on Craftsmanship at the Silver Temple
- Half Day
You will be picked up at 09:00 at the hotel and drive to the temple grounds. Meet with the monks and proceed to the workshop area where silver plates are made. Learn how to make these silver plates and create a personalised one using patterns taught at the workshop.

Wat Srisuphan is a silver temple that was first constructed at the beginning of the 16th century. Almost everything in the temple is made of silver and aluminum. The ordination hall is surrounded by sema stones and have remnants of the original wat with its intricate designs. The beautiful murals decorating the interior is a stunning tribute and example of the rich tradition for which the area is renowned for. Incorporating all aspects of Zen, Buddhist, Theravada and Taoist traditions, the murals bring life to the building and seem to illuminate the story of the Buddha. Two hundred years ago, the Ancient Arts Study Centre here was once a tiny silver-making community established just outside the city walls of Chiang Mai as a means of restoring heritage.

The workshop will be done just before lunch followed by a transfer back to the hotel.
