Definition of wat in English:
(In Thailand, Cambodia, and Laos) a Buddhist monastery or temple.
- I suggested we sample a shadow-puppet show and stroll around the eccentrically decorated wats.
- Other sights to marvel at include several impressive wats and the spectacular Silver Pagoda, which dramatically illustrates the richness of Khmer culture.
- The style of the main stupa at the wat is derived from Singhalese art around the same time as Singhalese Theravada Buddhism.
