    Everything you need to know about Temples in Krabi

    Thai temples are as far removed from typical western places of worship as possible. Instead of the sombre sandstone and granite of many churches and cathedrals, many Thais locate their temples in caves and they are colourful affairs, more often than not 'guarded' by brightly painted animals and images.

    Expect a multichrome experience with many twists and turns. Krabi is no exception and its Wat Tham Seua (Tiger Cave Temple) affords superb views from the summit of a nearby hill. Do not, however, expect to see tigers! For a classic reclining Buddha, head to Ao Nang.

The temple here is a warren of natural caves formed within a lush jungle and home to monks who worship and live in this beautiful environment. Read More...

  • Remarks: Dress respectfully and remember to take a bottle of water with you and to remove any jewellery, sunglasses or valuable items which may be taken by the playful monkeys. A visit is best scheduled early in the morning or late afternoon to avoid the midday sun.
  • How to get there: Tiger cave temple is located about three kilometres from Krabi town and easiest reached by mini-bus, taxi or tuk-tuk (arrange a fare with the tuk-tuk driver in advance). Alternatively you can take a traditional Thai public bus also known as a songthaew from either Krabi town or from Ao Nang. The public bus makes for a really cheap and interesting option where you’ll see plenty of Thai sights and sounds along the way in addition to meeting some locals. The bus stops at the road next to Wat Tham Sua and from there it takes about 20 minutes on foot.

Wat Kaew Korawaram

Wat Kaew Korawaram is a large Buddhist temple located on a hill overlooking Krabi downtown. Its origins date back to 1887, when 200 families settled at Baan Paknam (‘Estuary Village’ was the name of Krabi Town at that time). Monks and novices who coincidently arrived first established a dwelling which would become Wat Kaew Korawaram later on. The original ordination centre of Wat Kaew is right opposite the actual temple, and nowadays hosts The Krabi Contemporary Art Museum. The main access to the temple is off Maharaj Road, right opposite Soi 6.

A majestic staircase lined by golden Naga sculptures leads up to the 2,500sqm terrace on which the temple stands. Featuring different colours - white walls and dark blue tiled-roof - than standard Thai Buddhist temples (usually coloured in red and gold) Wat Kaew Korawaram’s ordination room features splendid wall paintings, a large Buddha statue, and some precious Buddha relics. On the temple terrace, visitors can find Wat Kaew Holy Amulets & Souvenir Shop, as well as food and drink stalls.

  • Opening Hours: Tue – Sun from 10.00 -17.00

Wat Sai Thai

0

Not far from Ao Nang on the side of the main road. Wat Sai Thai doesn't have a real temple but there is a reclining Buddha under a cliff and some small golden sitting Buddhas that make it worth a stop.

The setting with a giant tree in front of the cliff is a nice view from the road.
