Wanstead’s own Buddhist temple in Blake Hall Road is a lesser-known tourist attraction.

Ian from www.thebuddhasface.co.uk has posted the video essay of the Wat Buddharam temple, below, and says:

This is a lovely temple situated in a normal suburban house.The four monks who live there are very friendly and speak good English – always worth a visit and if you go at the weekend at 11.00 am you will be able to partake in delicious Thai food offered to the monks once they have finished their main meal of the day.

The monks have had planning battles largely because of noise and parking issues, as documented here in the Wanstead Guardian, but can apparently still operate as a temple so long as they don’t hold festivals.
