Welcome all to the official website of Wat Sangharatanaram also known as the Gold Coast Thai Temple. The Gold Coast Thai Temple has been established since 2007 as a public place of worship for Thais, non-Thais, Buddhists and non-Buddhists of all walks and ages. We’re located at 137 Beaudesert-Nerang Rd, Nerang QLD 4211 and open to the general public 7 days a week from 09:30 – 03:00pm.
The community gather daily and also on a regular basis every first Sunday of each month from 09:30am to make-merit and offerings to the monks. On these function days you can expect to learn and experience more of the Thai culture, meet new people and try some delicious Thai food!
Monks and facilities are provided for daily conduct of chanting, meditation, Dhamma talks and receiving offerings for merit-making of individuals and families. Monks can be invited for their one daily meal outside the temple. Functions are held on commemorative occasions for attendees to experience customs for merit-making, food offering, devotional practice and sermons familiar to Thai Buddhists in the Theravada, Dhammayuta tradition. Accredited teachers give lessons to children of Thai migrants, to introduce them to the language, customs and values of Thailand. All monks and lay persons at our temple are volunteers.
The temple is supported by donations from acceptable sources. Some fund-raising is conducted externally to the temple. Suitable grants are sought from government and philanthropic organisations.
We look forward to welcoming you!
