THE WORLD FAMOUS and highly controversial “Tiger temple” has now won a licence to operate a zoo, which will be developed with a budget of Bt120 million.
The temple, formally known as Wat Pa Luangta Maha Bua Yannasampanno, is in a remote corner of Kanchanaburi province but has come under the spotlight in recent years because of its sizeable tiger population. 
The temple maintains that wild tigers have sought sanctuary in its compound and reproduced at the site, while critics point out that the temple is not a zoo and has no facilities to properly handle animals.
