Wat Chai Si Phum (GPS: 18.79461, 98.99417; Thai: วัดชัยศรีภูมิ ) is a Thai Buddhist temple in Chiang Mai, Thailand. It is located on Wichayanon Road, on the outer side of the moat on the northeast corner of the Old City.

What Chai Si Phum dates to its founding by King Phra Muang Kaeo in 1519. It was built on the site of a fig tree which is deemed to be auspicious to the city. It underwent renovation in 1837, during the reign of King Phuthawong of Chiang Mai. Today, the temple is also popularly called Wat Phan Ta Koen.
