วัดพุทธไทยถาวรวนาราม นิวยอรค สหรัฐอเมริกา Wat Buddhathai Thavornvanaram NewYork 76-16 46th Ave Elmhurst, NY 11373 Elmhurst,USA Tel. (718) 803-9881 watthainyc.com Fantastic Thai Buddhist temple nestled away in Elmhurst! Friendly and inviting for special Thai events. Thai New Year (Songkran) also holy Buddha days. It's spotlessly clean. There are Buddha statues outside which are beautiful, especially the large white reclining Buddha at the back of the courtyard. Inside there are clusters of golden Buddhas which are beautiful. At special events they sometimes give food out which is delicious and traditional homemade Thai. The monks pray and chant during the holy events. I find it to be hypnotic and relaxing. People feed the monks and take their blessings. Everyone is very welcoming, but you must respect thier culture and customs and you will be truly welcomed.
