"The monk Chan, was only happy to pose with the tigers for us. It was amazing how he could handle those tigers as if they were tiny house cats, but then he's been raising them ever since they were born and the tigers seemed to be fond of him."

Berani is a Sumatran Tiger born in March 2008. He and Sumatran Tigress Leeloo born in 2011, occupy the Tiger Temple enclosure at Zoo Miami which was previously the domain of three sister Bengal Tigresses. These sisters succumbed to old age and passed away.

(TIGER TEMPLE)

Saiyok District, Kanchanaburi Province, Thailand

Thailand and its Monks are much in news with the commercial activity of sedated tigers being photographed by visitors - selfies seekers most of them. Over the last week Thai National Park and Wildlife authorities have been raiding the premises of one such enterprise called "Tiger Temple" Wat Pha Luang Ta Bua in Kanchanaburi with carcasses of tiger cubs being found in the freezers. This temple has about 137 tigers on its premises and the admission rates start from Thai Baht 600 per person. It is an out and out commercial activity that goes on relentlessly in spite of various complaints over the years.

 

Buddhism has adapted itself to the Thai lifestyle mixing business as well as being lax on eating of meat.

Chiangmai is due north of Bangkok and close to Burma. It is the cultural capital of Thailand. In the old city area there are hundreds of wats(temple) with magnificent carvings and gold and red paint.

 

Buddhists monks follow the regimen of an ascetic and in that mode they go out from their wat every day in the morning from 5am to 8AM with their begging bowl which is their only possession and receive alms or rather food from the people. It is a solemn and beautiful sight to see and great to see the faith and belief of the Thai people as they follow the rituals of the most peaceful religion.

 

I saw two little monks somewhat late near the Thaphae gate as they walked on the pavement next to the moat that used to run all around the walls of the city.

A tiger cub taken at Pha Luang Ta Bua Temple, also know as the "Tiger Temple" in Kanchanaburi. Here monks raise tigers from cubs to be completely tame.

Deep in the heart of the Kanchanaburi province in Western Thailand there lies a Buddhist temple with a difference. For not only is this temple home to monks who spend their time in prayer and meditation, over the last 7 years it has become a sanctuary for tigers.

Taken at the Tiger Temple in Thailand. Not only does my face look rather odd (on account of that awkward position they made me sit in). But lets face it, as soon as I opened my mouth to speak they told me to HUSH in case the tiger decided to jump up and have a mid afternoon snack! Worse they wouldn't let me stroke it. Oh well.
