Trip Report Temple Animals in Southeast Asia - A Photographic Journey

Jump to last reply

I recently returned from a trip to Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Myanmar and one of the things I discovered was the incredible number of animals living in the temples there.

One reason is that when someone can't afford to care for a pet, there is no Humane Society, so they often take them to the temples where they know the monks and nuns will look after them. It's because The Buddha instructed his followers over 2,500 years ago to never harm fellow living beings.

I put together a slideshow of the animals and monks if you're interested. It's on youtube and is called "Temple Cat Morning".

I also have a blog with 18 photos of what I found there.

I'd also be happy to try and answer any questions about the temples and the animals.
