About this Place Of Interest

Wat Samphran is a Buddhist temple complex that features Chinese architecture. Located in Nakhon Pathom, the complex is home to many interesting and huge sculptures, including a sacred white elephant, a rabbit, a dolphin, a peacock and a seven-headed naga serpent. There is also a large building in a shape of a tortoise and many statues of Lord Buddha in different colours and shapes. The most striking feature of this complex is its 17th storey shrine which is painted in red. Encircling the exterior walls from the base and towards the rooftop of this main shrine is a 300 metre green dragon. Wat Samphran is located off the beaten track and about 40 km away from Bangkok.
