Does anyone know where this is?
Apparently the monks there take good care of some tigers and visitors are welcome.
Does anyone know where it is?

Hi Mel,

Sorry not been on the site for a while, busy.

There's been a lot of contraversy about the temple in the last year or so, I've not been back for about a year so don't feel qualified to comment on how it is now. All I can say is the last time I was there there was no sign of the tigers being drugged or of any mal treatment to the tigers.

Unfortunatly due to work commitments it may be a few months before we can return there but rest assured we will.

I volunteer at the temple for some time. I saw no abuse in the beginning, but as I stayed there longer the abuse of the tigers and money donated by the public became evident. I left because of the abuse I witness .

Tigers were hit with fists, sticks and rocks. They had their noses and ears twisted for fun.

Do not support the Tiger temple. It is a tourist trap.
