KANCHANABURI is Thailand's third largest province, covering an area of 19,486 square kilometers. The provincial area is mountainous and borders Myanmar to the west. The province of Kanchanaburi consists of 13 districts or Amphoe of which Amphoe Muang, Amphoe Sai Yok, Amphoe Thong Pha Phum, Amphoe Sangkhlaburi, Amphoe Tha Muang, Amphoe Bo Phloi, and Amphoe Si Sawat are tourist destinations. Kanchanaburi is the site of the world-famous Bridge Over The River Kwae,( River Kwai Bridge ) immortalized in books and movies, and is noted for rugged natural beauty where mountains and river valleys have inspired development of hydro-electric power and where labyrinthine reservoirs provide further scenic elements to the province's natural beauty. Beyond the compact provincial capital, some 130 kilometers, and a comfortable 2-hour drive from Bangkok, where the Kwae Yai and the Kwae Noi rivers unite to form the Mae Klong River, Kanchanaburi unfolds in progressively arresting scenic beauty in a landscape characterized by several waterfalls, caves once inhabited by Neolithic man, national parks and tranquil riverside and reservoir settings. " YOU CAN VISIT KANCAHANBURI TOUR DAILY "TIGER TEMPLE PACKAGE TOUR KANCHANABURI THAILAND. TIGER TEMPLE " Buddhist Tiger Temple" , The first tiger was brought to the Pha Luang Ba Tua Buddhist Temple in 1998 after being injured by a hunter, but died within days. Soon after, two very ill cubs arrived with large knife wounds in their stomachs. Miraculously, they survived, and the temple quickly earned a reputation as a tiger haven. " When the villagers saw how we tended to the first tigers they brought others. Some were injured by hunters who had a change of heart, others by people who did not want the tiger near their village but also did not want to see it die," Phusit said. The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) estimates that there are between 150 and 500 tigers remaining in the wild in Thailand. Healthy tigers from the Temple are sent back to the forest once they are ready to return. To return to the wild, the tigers do not have far to go. The tiger temple sits on a small plain surrounded by jagged rocky outcrops about 40 kilometers beyond the famous World War II - The Bridge on the River Kwai.

ABOUT TIGERS TEMPLE in TIGER TEMPLE KANCHANABURI
TIGER TEMPLE THAILAND " Buddhist Tiger Temple Kanchanaburi "Tiger Temple –the Wildlife Heaven Wat Pa Luangta Bua Yannasampanno was established by the Abbot Phra Acham Phuis ( Chan ) Kanthitharo in 1994 by order of his teacher Venerable Luata Maha Bua Yannasmpanno (The highly respected and famous meditation guru). The name of the monastery was also given by the Venerable Luangta Maha Bua to follow his full name.
Since its opening Wat Pa Luangta Bua gained a repulation as a wildlife sanctuary , It started with an injured jungle fowl given to the monk by the villagers. Then peacocks came attracted by the calls of by then rather large colony of jungle fowl. An injured wild boar stumbled in to the monastery and the monks cared for him until he could be released back into the forest.
The next day he came back followed by his family group of about 10 animals. Now a countless number of wild boars find shelter in the monastery. Villagers also started to bring in unwanted per: four species of deer moved in followed by buffalo, cow, horses and wild goats. All these animals are roaming the grounds of the monastery freely.
The first tiger cub arrived in the monastery in February 1999.
It was a female cub of Indochinese tiger subspecies (Panthera tiger corbetti) and her condition was very poor. When she was only a few months old her mother was killed by poachers near the Thai-Burma border. The cub was sold to a wealthy Bangkok resident who ordered her stuffed. A local was hired to do the job, which fortunately he did not finish. And though he infected her in the neck with preservative formalin the cub survived. When she arrived to the monastery she was frail and terrified of the slightest sound. Under the loving care of the monks the cub recovered but in July 1999 she fell seriously ill and died. People who know about the incident did not want to see another cub mistreated again. However, it was not to be. The monastery is situated in Kanchanaburi province – an area lying adjacent to Burma. The Western Forest Complex that stretches along the boarder is the largest protected area in Asia and believed to be the home of the largest surest surviving tiger population in the region. Unfortunately, while this area is protected poaching still occurs rather frequently. A Thai poacher can get up to US $5,800 for killing a tiger, several years’ salary for a farmer. The profit is well worth the risk. And when the mother tiger is killed the cubs are taken as a bonus or left to fend for themselves in the jungle. Just a few weeks after the first cub has died two healthy male cubs intercepted from the poachers were brought to the monastery. They were tiny – just a few weeks old. A few months later the local villagers presented another two male cubs. And soon after the border police patrol intercepted cubs held by poachers and contributed four female cubs, achieving tiger harmony. The Abbot welcomed the animals and as he had no previous experience in looking after large carnivores he had to learn on the job. At first he build some concrete pans – all he could afford, to house the growing cubs in order to prevent them from killing other temple’s animals. As the years went by the tigers grew up and to abbot’s surprise and delight started to reproduce. However, as the tiger family grew the abbot became faced with the need to create more living space for his charges. As early as in 2003 the Abbot conceived an ambitious plan to create a large open air enclosure where each tiger would be given 1 rai of land. He sat the land aside and construction began.
