Wat Mangkon Buppharam or Leng Hua Yi is on Sukhumvit Road (Chanthaburi – Khlung route), Phlio subdistrict, Laem Sing district. It is located 16 kilometers away from Chanthaburi downtown.

Wat Mangkon Buppharam is a temple belonging to the Chinese Mahayana Buddhism and is a branch of Wat Mangkon Kamalawat or Leng Noei Yi in Bangkok. The temple was founded in 1977.

The architectural style of the temple is the combination between Thai and Southern Chinese Buddhist art. In the front stands the hall enshrining the sculpture of the four keepers of the world and of Sri Araya Maitreya Bodhisattva. In the temple, there is a 3-storey ordination hall in a Chinese architectural style where three primary Buddha images are installed. Moreover, the pavilion near the ordination hall is decorated with mosaic tiles of beautiful patterns. The atmosphere inside the temple is pleasantly calm and shady. The temple also provides accommodations for visitors who participate in Dhamma and meditation practices. 

There are 2 main ceremonies held at the temple. One is Kathin (robes offering ceremony) which is generally arranged after the Buddhist lent. The other is the temple’s annual ceremony which is held 21 days after the Chinese New Year celebration. A large number of people flocks to the temple to attend both ceremonies and often stay over for 7-10 days.

Wat Mangkon Buppharam is open to general visitors free of charge every day (including public holidays) from 6.00 am – 18.00 pm. For further information, please contact 039-397-210.
