Pink Buddhist Temple with a 17 Story Green Dragon

Video Preview

Thailand has the incredible and unique Wat Samphran – a bright pink Buddhist Temple that stands at an impressive 80 meters (263 feet) high and features a 17 story green dragon wrapped around the exterior of the building with its noble head proudly raised above the roof.

In the Samphran district of Thailand sits one of the country’s most spectacular Buddhist temples. Wat Samphran is a towering pink masterpiece scaling in at 80 meters high — homage to the number of years Buddha lived.

The Wat Samphran Temple is rarely featured in guidebooks and is considerably removed from the typical tourist track. 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. 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.
