Buddhist Temples

Suan Mokkh, Chaiya, Thailand – founded by Buddhadassa Bhikku in 1926. Currently hosts a monthly meditation retreat at the “International Dhamma Heritage” center across the highway from the main Suan Mokkh temple area.

Wat Pah Nanachat – Warin Chamrap, Ubon Ratchathani province in northeast Thailand. A forest wat that is for foreign (English speaking) monks that wish to ordain as Theravada monks in Thailand for a minimum of 3 years. It is also possible to do overnight or short-term stays, space permitting. Usually quite possible to just show up in the morning and be offered the chance to stay.

Wat Tum Sua – Krabi, Thailand. Abbot “Ajarn Jumnien Silsetso” is Thailand’s good luck monk and is an international meditation teacher frequently traveling to India, Laos, Malaysia, Burma, and the USA.

Wat Tum Sang Phet – a small Buddhist temple in Krabi, Thailand that is worth stopping off at if you want to walk around and do a little cave exploring. Can walk around the mountain and make a half-day of taking photos here.

A Buddhist meditation journal – meditation in the Buddhist tradition of anapanasati or focusing on the breath, without the details of Buddhism.
