Viharn Lai Kham (13th century) at Wat Phra Singh of Chiang Mai is a temple with walls painted with illustrations. It hosts an important Buddha statue: the Phra Buddha Sihing. Myths tell the statue was brought from India, Sri Lanka to Chiang Mai in the north of Thailand.

The roof is a work of wood painted in red which is reflected by a red carpet on the floor. Golden ornaments are placed on window shutters and the huge wooden entrance portal. The walls are painted with fragmented murals of Thai life Lenna art style. Six pillars hold the ceiling. They are not straight anymore but still strong.
