Tiger Temple is a Buddhist temple and also a rescue station for tigers. It is situated in Kanchanaburi province in western Thailand . It was established in 1994 as a forest temple and a sanctuary for all wildlife. Every day, more than 300 tourists come to see and admire local tigers.

About the Tiger Temple

The Tiger Temple is also known as Pha Luang Ta Bua. The Tiger Temple is situated about 40km from the town of Kanchanaburi . The local tigers are taken care of by Buddhist monks and a team of international volunteers. The species of those tigers is unknown, but most likely they are a mixture of Bengal and Indochinese tigers. The Tiger Temple was established to take care of tigers - usually tiger cubs whose mothers were killed by poachers. The temple became a sanctuary, where the cubs could grow up and live in peace and even move freely around the neighbourhood. Today the free movement of tigers is restricted as so many visitors come to see them. The whole Tiger Temple is financed from private sources and donations of visitors, who can, for a small fee , feed the cubs or get a photo with a grown up tiger.
