Wat Buddha Thai Thavorn Vanaram

April 27th, 2014

Located on a quiet residential street in Elmhurst, this eye-catching Thai Buddhist temple comprises two rather incongruous architectural styles. It was built in the late 1990s, replacing a pair of old houses that previously stood on the site. One of the houses had served as the temple, while the other had been used as living quarters for the monks before it was heavily damaged by a fire. Here's a great article about the temple's early days in the mid-1990s, before the current building was erected.
