Murfreesboro's Laotian Buddhist Temple

Murfreesboro Temple

If you've ever ventured along the Old Nashville Highway between LaVergne and Murfreesboro, you've probably been caught off-guard by seeing this temple. I was tracing the old Dixie Highway from Nashville to Chattanooga the first time I ever saw it. There are resident Buddhist monks living here, so that makes it a Wat Buddhist Temple.

Murfreesboro has a large Laotian community, including several friends I work with. I have heard if you stop by here, they are friendly and will sometimes allow you to look inside if you are nice.
