Wat Florida Dhammaram (Thai: วัดฟลอริดาธรรมมาราม) is a Buddhist monastery in Kissimmee, Florida, established by Lung-po Chaokhun Phra Tepvaraporn (Im Arindhamo) in the mid-1990s. Over a decade ago, Lung-po visited lay-devotees in Florida and perceived the lack of a Buddhist monastery in the Central Florida area. With approval from the late abbot of Wat Sommanat Vihara, Chaokhun Somdej Phra Wannarat Chop Thitadhammamahathera, he began fund raising in Thailand. In 1993, three monks were sent with Prakrupalad Sunnan (now Chaokhun Phra Vijitrdhammapani, the present abbot) to establish and further the development of Wat Florida Dhammaram.
