Our Monks

All of our monks come from our parent temple, Wat Phra Singh in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand, and are here on either two-year or three-year UK visas.  To work as monks overseas they will have passed a very vigorous interview process in Bangkok with the Thai Sangha authorities to allow them to act as Buddhist missionary monks. Their work here is to support the community and the temple, and also to improve themselves by gaining new experiences and learning a new language and culture.  We are deeply grateful for their guidance in serving the community.
