This temple is in a lovely location - right on the edge of the sea. Loads to see and very peaceful. Take a scooter ride here and wander around looking at all the different Buddha statues. The central tree surrounded by 5 seated Buddhas is massive in girth and obviously very old.

I was looking forward to going here but a bit disapointed. I found the place a bit shabby looking, fires was set burning all over, smelly smoke. They have about 24 dogs there and I do love dogs but one poor chap looked like was on his way out. The couple of monks we met was friendly just the grounds. Guess they need a few more hands to clean the place up a bit.

Nice little temple

Actually the only temple on the island. Make sure you visit the stairway - awesome dragon artwork. Better wear closed shoes - we have met a scorpion there.

They have a pretty view, and a nice dragon stair! You can see monks who are living there. The big tree with the statues around is beautiful! It’s good to see, they are renovating and developing the temple’s area!

Great Place!

We stayed at Ko Mak Resort and walked across the island to visit the temple. At first we thought it was the Buddha you can see from the street, but you have to walk up a bit to find it. Very simple place and you can feel the spirit there. Leave some money there in the box for lonely dogs and walk towards the edge where you can see fantastic dragons and have a nice view of the coast.

very nice and peaceful

obviously the temple is not the reason why one would travel to koh mak - but while you‘re there you might as well stop by. it‘s very tranquile, time seems to pass in slow motion... it‘s not very well kept, but a nice compound with nice cabins, statues and a great view on the sea. next to the buddha statues there also is a small crematorium - while absolutely peaceful, it still made me shudder!

Yesterday my wife and i sew koh mak temple. It is a small compound, comprising several buildings, a temple with statues and living quarters for the monks. There is an observation platform with a nice view of the sea, two more statues and a gate decorated with dragons. Good to see and, maybe, meditate.

Must seen!

Something you must seen on Koh Mak! Really nice temple with dragons and Buddhas. Looks amazing, because it is on the top of the hill and you can take the stairs down to go to the beach. And the stairs are just incredible beautiful

Upon arriving onto Koh mak you will pass what seems to be just a small shrine. This is all but decieving. There is a wonderfuly large temple beyond the shrine. It out reaches to the waterway with amazing statues built all around. Many snake style statues or a Buddha blocking the way for serpents to enter the land. The locals at the temple are friendly and there's much art to see.
