Wat Mongkolratanaram is a small Thai Buddhist Buddhist temple located in Berkeley, California. It mainly attracts Thai American Buddhists, including many who are students at the University of California, Berkeley, but it also draws in many local, non-Buddhists who come searching for authentic Thai food on Sundays or attend its frequent cultural events. The temple is home to a Thai school for Bay Area youth, as well as Berkeley’s Thai Cultural Center.
The Thailand-born Ajahn Manat is the current abbot of Wat Mongkolratanaram.
