Wat Sri Suphan was built in 1502 though almost nothing remains of the original temple. Today Wat Sri Suphan is the focus of renovations designed to make it a suitable centerpiece for the silver village it serves known as Wualai. The entire surface of the temple's halls, inside and out, are being covered in silver an ongoing project at the temple which is also a sponsor of the silversmithing school so as to ensure that the tradition of the village is passed on. Wat Sri Suphan's nickname, as you might guess, is the Silver Temple.
