Wat Sam Phran

Message from the Founder/ Sen Message

Description

An enormous dragon scales the walls of this 17-story temple in Khlong Mai, Thailand.⁠

The Wat Samphran Temple is rarely featured in guidebooks and is considerably removed from the typical tourist track. The dragon itself is reportedly hollow, and visitors are able to walk some sections of it, though other parts of the temple remain closed to the public. Travelers who’ve happened upon the temple in their journeys have described an interior in mild disrepair but filled with stunning statues and shrines, including a giant bronze Buddha.
