Wat Rong Seua Ten is literally House of the Dancing Tiger and is apparently named for the tigers that used to inhabit the lush forests around Chiang Rai.
The temple is located in Rong Suea Tan which is in the Rimkok district which is on the outskirts of Chiang Rai. It was in 1996 that the villagers decided that a temple was required in order for the people in the area to engage in receiving merits by prayer, meditation and worship. The monastery began construction in the October of 2005 and was completed in January 2016.
Information About the Temple
Admission into the temple is absolutely free.
There are no public transport routes that can take you to Wat Rong Seua Ten so you would have to hire a tuk-tuk or a car or drive there yourself. It is quite easy to find if you take the No. 1 road into the outskirts and go across the river Kok. There are signs indicating the temple. It would be easier to locate if you are staying at a hotel in Chiang Rai as you can ask them to book you the ride. Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort is about an hour and fifteen minutes away.
