Wat Samphran is the Buddhist Temple of the Rising Dragon located about 25 miles west of Bangkok in the Nakon Pathom province of Thailand. The 17 story tower is a building you can’t miss: the structure is painted pink and features a dragon wrapping around the whole thing. Atop the temple is the dragon’s head, a sight that tourists often climb the stairs in order to get a closer look at.
This incredible building was the concept of the temple’s founder who came up with the idea in a dream after a 7-day fast. Not commonly featured in guidebooks, this unique temple has often mystified travelers who happened upon it. Take a look at this amazing temple in the video below.
