The Wat Sanpran Dragon Temple
The Wat Sanpran Dragon Temple is a 16-storey red tower with a statue of a dragon wound around
it. The temple complex consists of smaller temples and many statues inspired by dragons and the chinese zodiac. There is a giant dragon spiraling to the top. It’s grounds include many sculptures of other giant beasts and a enormous Buddha
made of bronze.
Visitors have commented that there are several hidden treasures upstairs and downstairs within the temple so if you ever manage to visit the place, explore, explore, explore! The
entrance to Wat Samphran is small, so look for a sign that says Police Academy, and you will find the temple halfway down the road to your right.
Maintenance is said to be lacking and while
the monks are very welcoming, some parts of the temple are not open to the public.
