This Thai temple will make you feel what it's like being in a temple in Thailand for those who are planning to travel to Far East. Not only it's a temple, there are food stalls on the weekend - very inexpensive with no sales tax. The most authentic you can find! Everyone is welcome at the temple. See the true... More

I'm not Thai but have been to Thailand a couple of times and I feel in Thailand when I visit this colorful temple. It is authentic Thai. Visitors should respect the main Buddhist traditions: shoes off, no expressions of affection in the temple - definitely don't touch a Thai person on the head - and don't point your feet towards...

My wife and I enjoyed visiting this temple and relaxing a bit from our otherwise hectic day in LA. The temple looks like some temples in Thailand, it has the statues and other figures to show the Buddhist culture and lifestyle. It looks like a great place to come to for locals and visitors. The location was handy for us... More

First things to say, I am neither Thai nor a Buddhist. This beautiful example of a reasonably sized Thai temple (wat) is on a busy road in the Fernando Valley. There's the usual large temple up some stairs, or ramps. There are also several smaller temples of various sizes in the grounds. This is an active, working temple. As always... More

They serve food on the weekends that is pretty cheap but a little greasy but very tasty. It is strictly there type of food from noodles, soups curries deserts coconut drinks and more. You can visit... More

Wat Thai is a Buddhist temple located in the San Fernando Valley. Los Angeles has a huge Thai population, many living in North Hollywood, just south of this temple. The best time to go is on Sundays or during a Thai festival. Last year, I visited the temple during the Thai New Year (Songkran festival) which happens mid-April and it... More
