Fantastic Visit to the Temple & Shrine
Mar 2019 • Couples
One can go up to the temple by a specially designed gondola track controlled by a person on the top and pulled by a cable by a large diesel engine. When you enter the temple, you get a wonderful feeling of the constant fresh cool breeze over the island. Including a panoramic view of the island and surroundings. Breathtaking. It is worthwhile to visit the temple and enjoy the shrine and all the beauty around you. Highly recommended.

Chao Pho Khao Yai Shrine is a Chinese-style Buddhist temple built into the side of the cliff at the northern end of Ko Sichang Harbour.

It was built by 18th century Chinese traders to protect them while at sea and to ensure a safe passage home.

The shrine dominates the northern skyline of Ko Sichang Harbour, and sticks out as a prominent red building halfway up the mountain at the northern end of the harbor.

The shrine itself is accessed by a steep flight of stairs, although there is now a cable car for those less fit (with appropriate donation box on arrival). We walked up.

The décor is typically Chinese. Very colourful and apart from Buddha, the shrine includes the whole pantheon of Chinese gods.

As it is built into the side of the cliff, there are many small grotto-like shrines, each dedicated to a particular deity. But watch your head, as the entrances to some are very low and you can do yourself a nasty injury on the low hanging rocks.

Apart from the shrine itself, the view from the top is breathtaking. You can look right over the small township of Ko Sichang and its harbor, right to the south of the island, and westwards to the seas of the Gulf of Thailand.
