Meditation Temples of Thailand – Forest Tradition

Thailand’s Forest Tradition Temples

There are many Theravada Buddhist temples following the Forest Tradition, but we don’t know them all, so this will be an abbreviated list to some we are familiar with and have visited.

Monks Ajahn Chah in the northeast and Buddhadasa Bhikku in the south were instrumental in creating forest monestaries that brought the focus back to following what the Buddha did, not what Buddhism became afterward.

Ajahn Chah’s Temples

  • Wat Nong Pah Pong – Warin Chamrap, Ubon Ratchathani, Thailand
  • Wat Pah Nanachat– Warin Chamrap, Ubon Ratchathani, Thailand
  • Wat Boonyawad – Ajahn Dtun Thiracitto’s temple in Chonburi.
  • Wat Pah Ampawan – Ajahn Jundee Kantasāro’s temple in Chonburi.
  • Wat Marp Jan – Ajahn Anan Akiñcano’s temple in Rayong.
  • Wat Ratanawan – bordering Khao Yai National Park in Korat (Nakhon Ratchasima). Meditation center for people with experience.
