Long Description:
Wat Yarnna Rangsee is a Theravada Buddhist Monastery founded in 1989 by the Thai Buddhist who resided in Washington, D.C. Metropolitan and under the patronage of Pra Dharmapanyajarn, the Abbot of Wat Makut Kasattriyaram, Bangkok, Thailand. There are many Thai and other Asian people living in this area who had practiced Buddhism in their old countries almost since birth.

The temple was previously located in Falls Church, Virginia. Then, we moved to Fairfax Station and finally we settled down in Sterling, Virginia since 1996. There are now an Abbot, Phrakhru Sirihammvidhes Udom Samana, who is the President of the Wat Yarna Rangsee Buddhist Monastery and its Committees & five monks living in the monastery. A beautiful, new temple was built with the generous donations of hundreds; it was constructed in 2009 and completed in 2010 for occupency. - (visit link)
