The temple of tame tigers

The Wat Pa Luangta Bua Yannasampanno Monastery in Thailand is home to a family of tigers raised by a monk and living alongside human visitors. Villagers brought the first tiger cub to the monastery in 1999 after poachers killed its mother.

There are around 40 tigers in the temple which is a wildlife sanctuary where tourists can touch resting tigers.
