A brief history of Wat Mongkolratanram (Wat Tampa)


  • The Wat was established in Tampa in 1981.
  • The Temple moved to its current location in 1983. At the time there were two Monks.
  • The Sunday Market started in 1987 or 1988 with two tables.
  • About 1990 we purchased the land where the Hall is located. This doubled the size of the Temple grounds. 
  • In 2008 we completed the desk refurbishment. What an improvement!
  • Ground breaking for the Temple and Monks quarters was in 2004.
  • The new Temple and Monks quarters were dedicated in May of 2007. We had been planning and saving for the Temple since the early 1990s. As you might expect we are extremely proud of the temple.
  • In 2011 we added a sea wall and benches for relaxing beside the Palm River.
  • In 2015 we have renovated the Sunday Market deck and replaced the aging boat dock.
