Civilopedia entry[]

A "Wat" is a Buddhist monastery temple found in Cambodia, Thailand, or Laos. The literal translation of "wat" is "school", and indeed the Siamese wats were both places of worship and of learning. A wat consists of a temple containing statues of the Buddha, a prayer room, a room containing religious texts, a pavilion for relaxation, a library, study hall, bell towers, and living quarters. It may be a single building or a collection of structures- a town in itself. Constructed in the 12th century, the Angkor Wat in Angkor, Cambodia, is one of the largest and best-preserved wats in Southeast Asia.

Trivia[]

  • Wat actually means temple, as well. All Thais refer to a wat as a temple in modern times.
  • In the past, people studied in wats because the only people who could teach were monks. Most other people were illiterate.
