According to locals, Wat Si Muang houses the central pillar of the city where legend has it, a woman named Si once jumped to her death in an act of self-sacrifice. The temple is divided into two distinct spaces—a front room where monks can be found offering prayers and blessings, and a rear room where worshipers kneel at the foot of an ornate altar.
A massive tree in the Wat’s garden offers travelers the perfect place to relax in the shade and take in the people and energy of this spiritual place. In addition to the temple’s well-maintained rooms, beautiful grounds provide visitors with sacred silence that’s perfect for reflection.
Wat Si Muang is located just south of the intersection of Sakarin Road and Rue Samsenthai.
