Giant Dragon around the Temple

Giant Dragon around the Templewat-samphran-1About 40 km west of Bangkok lies the district of Samphran, where there is a rather odd-looking Wat or Buddhist temple. The temple complex has a giant golden Buddha statue and several shrines and smaller statues within, but the one that draws the eyes of tourists is a 17-storey pink tower with an enormous dragon wrapped around it.

Located off the beaten track, Wat Samphran is rarely mentioned in guide books and remains unmarked on maps. It’s not a big tourist attraction but many travellers who visited the temple spoke about its tranquil and spiritual atmosphere. Who designed it or when it was built is a mystery.
