Thai Temples in North America
"The following list of Thai Buddhist temples in North America was originally prepared by Sorrayut Ratanapojnard, with corrections and additions made by Joy Aswalap. In the summer of 1996 Joy kindly gave John Bullitt the opportunity to update and maintain this list, which is based on her June 1994 edition (and which was originally downloaded from NECTEC's ftp site in Thailand). In February 1998, DharmaNet International agreed to continue the maintainance of this list. It has since been updated based upon information provided by the Thai Bhikkhus Council."
