As seen on Huell Howser’s ROAD TRIP to Stockton in 2007, the Stockton Cambodian Buddhist Temple (Wat Dhammararam) is an active Buddhist temple that features over 90 colorful and larger than life jewel encrusted statues that celebrate the life and story of the Cambodian Buddha. You have to see it to believe it....the temple boasts a 50 foot long recumbent Buddha. Also home to the annual Cambodian New Year Celebration every April.
Download the Stockton Cambodian Buddhist Temple Guide, print, and bring it with you in order to best understand the story behind this beautiful display of art (Guide is also included below). Visitors should feel free to ask questions of the Temple members and monks.
For questions, please call Visit Stockton at @ 877-778-6258 or check out the Temple’s official website.
