Tiger Temple was founded by abbot Phra Achan Phoosit (Chan) Khantitharo in 1994, getting its name after meditation guru, and Khantitharo’s master, Venerable Luangta Maha Bua Yannasampanno. It is a wildlife sanctuary, with a tradition for providing food, shelter and care for injured animals. Life there is simple and regimented, structured around a Theravada Buddhism. A sense of harmony between wildlife and humanity exists, one which is inspiring to witness.
