Forest Hermitage


The Forest Hermitage (also known as Wat Pah Santidhamma) is a small forest monastery that was founded by Luang Por Khemadhammo in 1985. As well as the main monastery, just a ten minute walk away is another property known as Bhavana Dhamma, which is used for occasional retreats and where women and nuns may stay. The Forest Hermitage is also the headquarters of Angulimala, the Buddhist Prison Chaplaincy.
The Forest Hermitage is an affiliated Branch Monastery.
