 Thailand’s Top 5 Dragon Temples 

1. Wat Phra Kaew 

Wat Phra Kaew is one of Thailand’s most sacred temples. It is situated in the Grand Palace in Bangkok and is known as the temple of the Emerald Buddha. Its main attraction is the Emerald Buddha, a revered icon carved from a single piece of jade. While dragons are not the main focus here, intricate dragon motifs adorn the temple’s architecture, symbolizing power, protection, and prosperity.

2. Wat Pho 

The Temple Wat Pho, Reclining Buddha is Situated just south of the Grand Palace. Wat Pho is famous for its colossal reclining Buddha statue, 46 meters long and covered in beautiful gold leaf. The temple complex also features numerous smaller chapels adorned with colourful murals depicting scenes from Buddhist mythology, including the role of dragons as guardians of the Buddha’s teachings.

3. Wat Arun 

Named after the Hindu god Aruna, it is known as the Temple of Dawn. It is renowned for its towering central prang (spire), adorned with colourful ceramic tiles and intricate carvings. As tourists climb the steep steps to the top of the prang, they will be thrilled with the spectacular sights of the surrounding cityscape and the Chao Phraya River. Look closely; they will spot dragon sculptures guarding the temple’s entrance and various corners of the complex.

4. Wat Rong Khun 

In Chiang Rai, Wat Rong Khun, the White Temple is a contemporary masterpiece with a dazzling white facade and elaborate architectural details. While not a traditional Buddhist temple, it incorporates elements of Buddhist mythology, including depictions of dragons, demons, and heavenly beings, symbolising the eternal struggle between good and evil.

5. Wat Phra That Doi Suthep

Perched atop a mountain overlooking Chiang Mai, Wat Phra That Doi Suthep is one of northern Thailand’s most sacred temples. Legend has it that the site was chosen by a sacred white elephant, who climbed the mountain, trumpeted three times, and then died. Dragons play a significant role in the temple’s decorative motifs, symbolizing strength, wisdom, and protection.
