Due to the geographical location & sharing a common border with Kingdom of Thailand at the North. The distributions of Thai temples are mainly located at the northern states of Kedah, Kelantan, Penang and Perak. Out of curiosity, I did a detailed search and found a listing compiled by some young Ruam Thai (Bahasa Malaysia speaking youth with Thai origin, who resides in Malaysia). Originally, I have tried to put up link to their site but after careful analysis, I have noticed most of the compilation are actually duplicates. Further, due to this group of youth's activities are mainly confined to the northern states of Malaysia and thus, many of the thai temples locating at the central or even the southern states have been, either omitted (or simply lack such kind of information) from the compilation.
Hence, In order to provide a clearer and ease of browsing, I have spent some time to reedit all the resources into one - with the added benefits of able to appoint Stan Thong to monitor or edit any submission from the public. From here onwards, may be for those who wishes to have a blessing by a monk, you can find a suitable location nearest to you from this listing.

What can you do to make this listing more complete ?
Information on Thai Temples in the States of Perlis, Pahang, Johor and even East Malaysian States of Sarawak & Sabah is almost NONE. If you have one near the place of residence in your town(s) or cities, mail Stan SL Thong. Thank you.
So, beside casual browsing around, you can also help to make this site more complete in information by suggesting a new Location to this listing.
