Wat Samphran temple, the Temple of the Dragon
Among the temples the most fascinating and curious, there is definitely the Wat Samphran, the Temple of the Dragon, one of the places of worship in the most unusual of Thailand, located in the city of Nakhon Pathom, about forty kilometres from Bangkok. The top 17 floors is pink. And it is wrapped in the coils of a gigantic dragon. Around the property there is a garden with sculptures of elephants, dolphins, dragons, and a huge statue of the Buddha. The temple is not included in the main tourist guides of the Country, for this is not always easy to find. But the beauty of travel lies also in the effect of surprise – as in this case – to discover the places that can make us gape.
