Wat Traphang Ngoen (GPS: 17.01651, 99.69989; Thai: วัดตระพังเงิน ) is an ancient Thai Buddhist temple in the Sukhothai Historical Park in Sukhothai, Thailand. Located right in front of a serene lotus pong, this temple dates from the 14th century. The meaning of its name is appropriate to its location: Temple of the Silver Pond.

The most prominent feature of Wat Traphang Ngoen is its central stupa, which is in the form of a lotus bud. The stupa comprises five brick tiers of diminishing size, with a white neck.

Separated from the temple proper, and located in the middle of the pond, is the temple's ordination hall, or ubosot, nowadays only the base is still remaining. There is also an empty pedestal from there was once a seated Buddha statue. A modern bridge connects the island to the bank.
