A wat (Thai) or watt (Cambodian) is a Buddhist temple-monastic complex. Thai and Cambodian temples typically have two sections, one in which both monks and laity worship the Buddha, and the other reserved for the monastic community. The former typically includes a reliquary tower and one or more image halls for religious observances. The monastic area will include living quarters, classrooms, business offices, and meditation rooms. The temple complex may also have a library, a Bodhi Tree, and guardian lions or serpents to protect the entrance.
