A sanctuary for wild animals, Tiger Temple is a Theravada Buddhist Temple which was founded in 1994. The temple has several Indochinese tigers and features a number of other birds and animals. The place had been accused for mistreating tigers but in 2015, it was cleared of these allegations.
Highlights: Monks here walk tigers. The place is known for its different concept of animal conservation, as humans and wildlife lives lose together. Here, one can find newly discovered species of Malayan Tigers as well. Apart from Indochinese tigers, the place has a Bengal Tiger named Mek. Currently, there are over 150 tigers at the place.
A number of these may include cross-breed tigers or hybrids as well. Along with tigers, this place also houses a number of birds and other animals. Several new steps are now being taken for protection of Tigers at this temple and forest sanctuary.
