About Wat Buddhapradeep

Our History

Wat Buddhapradeep of San Francisco Thai Buddhist Temple was founded in 1994 by Abbott & President Venerable Sitthiporn Mitwichian (Phra Khru Vorasitthivited). The temple's original location before settling in San Bruno, California was in the adjacent City of San Mateo. Situated south of San Francisco and nearby San Francisco International Airport the temple finds itself cradled in an area of cultural diversity and international tourism. Since the temple's founding in 1994, it has become one of many places to visit by both domestic and international tourists who seek different cultural and local flavors here in the Bay Area. Hidden and humble, Wat Buddhapradeep of San Francisco continues to offer Buddhism and the colorful fabric of Thai culture as it has been doing so for the past two decades.

                                                                                       Our Ambiance

Wat Buddhapradeep of San Francisco is a place of worship and spiritual/mind development. We are open to the general public and welcome all who wish to explore, learn, develop, and/or be a part of our monastic community. Our monks and lay devotees are dedicated to serving the people who walk through our doors, whether they are regulars who frequent our temple or just one-time visitors. The public is more than welcome to not only come in and meditate on their spare time but to also join us for our morning and evening chants at 7:00 AM & 7:00 PM.


Every year we celebrate 3 different Buddhist holidays (Vesakha Puja Day; Asalha Puja Day; Magha Puja Day), the Buddhist Lent, and 2 Thai cultural events (Songkran Festival; Loy Krathong). The dates for these holidays and events are based on the lunar calendar and thus land on a different date each year. For exact time and dates, please follow the Wat Buddhapradeep Sf Facebook page.
