Wat Thai Washington, D.C. operates under the Buddhist Association in Washington, D.C., which was founded in November 1971. The local government (Montgomery County, Maryland) certified the Temple as a place of worship under Article 81, Section 9 (C) of the Tax Laws of Maryland. The official permit issued in June 1992 granted the Temple full status as a nonprofit organization.
The Temple was first established in July 1974, at 705 Wayne Avenue in Silver Spring, Maryland. On December 7, 1980, the Temple moved to a new location at 9033 Georgia Avenue, also in Silver Spring. On July 20, 1986, the Temple relocated to its present location.
