Wat Sampran Dragon Temple in Bangkok, Thailand


The Wat Sanpran Dragon Temple is a 17-storey red tower with a statue of a dragon wound around it. The temple complex consists of smaller temples and many statues inspired by dragons and the chinese zodiac.

The Wat Samphran Temple is rarely featured in guidebooks and is considerably removed from the typical tourist track. Travelers who've happened upon the temple in their journeys have described an interior in mild disrepair but filled with stunning statues and shrines, including a giant bronze Buddha.

The dragon itself is reportedly hollow, and visitors are able to walk some sections of it, though other parts of the temple remain closed to the public.
