Overview

This temple complex not only serves as a religious site for the monks who live and worship there, but also features a maze of natural caves in an overgrown jungle valley where stone tools, pottery remains and the mold for making Buddha footprints have been excavated.

Getting to the top requires being healthy and in a good shape. The stairs are incredibly steep at some point. I wouldn't recommend climbing to the top if you have health issues or heart problems. I even saw young guys in troubles and panting all...More

we arrived and wasn't greatly taken back. it was pleasant enough but wasn't really for us and in 36 degree heat I didn't fancy hiking up a million steps. if you fancy that then this would be for you.

I spent three days in Krabi and I can say that hiking up to the temple was my favorite activity to do there. Yes, the hiking itself is really exhausting, you’ll probably be sweating all over your body (especially if it’s 35 C degrees outside)...More
