Wat Phra Singh

One of the most important wats in Chiang Mai is Wat Phra Singh.  It was established in 1345.  It is also the center of religious festivities during the Thai new year, Songkran, which is held in April. 
One of the temples has these life-size statues of famous monks who have served there.  They are so life-lime that they're creepy.  I almost wanted to touch one to make sure he wasn't alive, but at the same time I didn't want to just in case he was.
