Wats Across America

wat_laobuddhovathRI

Across America, there is usually a wat (temple) nearby where Laotian Americans that serves as both a social and religious center. Many members of the community assemble for prayers on the days of each lunar quarter; on days of major religious festivals, they carry out more elaborate ceremonies and may organize a boun (religious fair) at the wat.

This is a comprehensive list of wats and other organizations across America that serve the Laotian community. Please contact us if your wat is not listed or if the contact information for your wat needs to be updated.

15 thoughts on “Wats Across America

  1. Your Wats list several Lao & Hmong Catholic organizations. If you list the Catholic organizations, you should also list Lao Protestant churches and religious bodies.
    You also need to list the Lao IuMienh King Pan Temple in Oakland, CA.

  2. Tx for sharing your comment. Can you send us a listing of the Lao organizations that you would like to see on this list? We will gladly add them.

  3. This website does not have enough contact with Lao people in USA. Need to open your eyes more or try to contact further more, there are more Wats in this country that you still need to do the research. For example, there is one Wat in Houston, TX. Hello lao people, are you still good enough to get in touch if you are really native Laotian.!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Tx for your feedback! Can you share addresses to Wats or churches in your area for us to add to the site?

  5. There is a mispelled word in the 1st sentence. I believe you meant to say “religious” rather than “regious”.

    Enjoy visiting Lao community’s sites. I am a member at the Wat Lao in Riverside. Thank you for what you do; it is a thankless job! Keep up the good work…

  6. If I am not mistaken there is a mispelled word in the 1st sentence on this page. I believe you meant to say “religious” rather than “regious”.

    I am a member at the Wat Lao in Riverside (So Cal). Thank you for all you do – being an outlet for the Laotian community. Keep up the great work!

  7. Hello,
    I am looking for an Laotian Interpreter in the area of Nashville, TN.
    If you can guide me
    Please

    thank you

  8. Can you please update our info and link our temple Lao Dhamma Sacca Temple at 2710 S. Fruit Ave Fresno CA 93706 559.268.6354 to our website.

    Thank you.

  9. Wat Lao Buddha Sattha Dhamma, located in Alto, GA is a fairly new temple set on 17.5 acres of land in rural NE GA. Its address is:

    Wat Lao Buddha Sattha Dhamma
    236 Buchanan Road
    Alto GA 30510

    706-776-1440

    Venerable Vatthana Lattanaxay is abbot.

  10. I have been looking for LANA until now. I lost contact with this website for 3 years round. Well, I am an independent Lao woman and considerably down-to-earth one, because the society does not accept me since I am married to a caucasian, P am just live far from all lao people. I am willing to help all laotians to improve our culture and manage our own tradition to show the world that we still exists even though we were born in a small country.

    God bless you all and care for you all,

    Mrs. Krinkisda Rayman, Former DongDok Teacher, in Vientiane

  11. Sabaidee Took Thanh,

    Your Georgia listing of Lao temples is nearly complete! So far you only have those that are within the Lao community in the Atlanta area, you are missing two more that are located in the northeast region of the state.
    I will gladly share them with you if you provide me an email address.

    Kap Jai,
    Kim

  13. Dear Mrs Rayman, I am responding to your comment on the LANA website on March 4, 2014.
    I have added your email to the LANA newsletter and to the group.
    Please consider joining us on August 8 and 9, 2015 in Providence, Rhode Island for our annual conference.

    Thank you for you,
