The Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua Yannasampanno Forest Monastary, also known by the apt nickname Tiger Temple, in Kanchanburi, Thailand, is home to thousands of animals, including its most famous residents: 34 tigers. Every afternoon, tourists from across the world flock to the Buddhist temple, where they pay anywhere from $15 to $50 to walk with the tigers and take photographs with them.
