One of the things that Thailand is most well-known for are the many beautiful temples all over the country. As a Buddhist country, temples are an important part of Thai culture.
In Thai, a temple is known as a “wat”. There is several particularly famous temples that have key aspects of interest, for example, Wat Phra Kaew – The local Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Wat Arun – The local Temple of Dawn, Wat Saket, and Wat Suthat.
Although temple architecture in Thailand has seen many changes over the years, all of the temples adhere to the same principles. In Thai culture, temples have two parts: The Phutthawat (Thai: พุทธาวาส) is an area which is dedicated to Buddha and the Sangkhawat (Thai: สังฆาวาส) contains the living quarters of the monks temple
