Tiger Temple or Wat Pa Luangta Bua Yannasampanno Forest Monastery

Location: 38 km from downtown Kanchaburi, in Saiyok District of Kanchanaburi Province

When the news about the Buddhist monks rescued, raised and tamed orphaned tigers spreading out through many foreign media, Wat Pa Luangta Bua or generally known as the Tiger Temple becomes another must visit attraction for tourists. Apart from giving a home to the savage beasts like tigers, the monks nurture wild pigs, deer, antelopes, water buffalos, apes and a handful of other animals, so the temple is now recognized as a wildlife sanctuary.

Every afternoon, tigers will be taken to the canyon and tourists can get nose to nose and have photographs taken with them. The wildlife rescue project here was started in 1999 when an orphaned female Indochinese cub was given to the temple. Her mother was killed by poachers and the baby itself was to be stuffed. But, the poor little cub was miraculously survived from the injection of preservative formalin. Though frail and terrified, the animal was cured and recovered. Since then more orphaned and injured tigers have been sent to the temple.

The best visiting time is from 12.00 to 15.30 hrs. Getting to the Tiger Temple from Bangkok takes about two and a half hours drive. Visitors can catch a bus from Bangkok Southern Bus Terminal.
