The 17-Story Dragon

If I ever get to Thailand, this temple is on the top of my list. I had never heard of the Wat Samphran Temple until it showed up on my Instagram feed with this amazon drone pic.

The whole building is a temple with a dragon wrapped around it. You can get to the roof in an elevator (when it’s working) or climb your way up inside the dragon. It kinds of looks like a Vegas tourist trap, but it’s a legit Buddhist temple.
