Thailand's temples honor a wide range of religions and cultures. Ornate temples are used as symbols to represent Hinduism, Buddhism, and other religions. 33,902 of Thailand's 41,205 Buddhist temples (Wat) have been used since the last update. Each has a rich cultural history, but you don't have to be religious or passionate about culture to appreciate its design or surroundings.
A temple tour is a way for foreign tourists to see Thai temples as they travel the country because of their beauty. Thai wats are places to pray for good fortune, make merits, light incense for ancestors, and converse with the monks who live there, in addition to being places to admire the architecture.
While most temples in Thailand are magnificent in their own right, a select few really stand out. The impressive wats that you should include on your Thailand temple tour are listed below. Some are well-known and easy to get to, while others are a little more out of the way but worth the effort to go to.
