Beautiful liturgy
Mar 2020 • Solo
Prime religious experience if you are a Christian. Warm welcome by a small Russian Orthodox community headed by the parish priest Father Alexey. Sunday Divine Liturgy begins at 9 and takes at least two hours. The church is equally beautiful from the exterior, with its blue domes, and interior with nice and simple frescoes and divine icons. A very rewarding experience.

Beautiful Building
Oct 2019
A very beautiful building that is of artistic value regardless of the spiritual dimension for some. My 7 year old son was very interested in the frescos and icons.

Super views at this Russian Orthodox Church!!!
Oct 2017 • Couples
This church is located mid way up a hill overlooking the "western part" of Lamai beach! There are also small farmers' plots (one growing asparagus) nearby. It is the only Orthodox Church on Ko Samui. The church is blue on the outside and very interesting inside-- and is well worth a visit!!

Nice Church
Mar 2017 • Solo
A nice example of Orthodox Church Architecture. Had just been painted when I was there so the color's were quite vivid and beautiful. Couldn't go inside as it was locked but managed to walk around it all. Not much of a view of the coast now due to trees and other buildings but still worth a quick stop. Easy to find and walk too from Lamai Beach. I did this Church, Snake Stone Pagoda and Hin Yai, Hin Ta Rocks in one afternoons walk.
