Having already been to a fair few cave temples in Thailand this visit left me wondering why I hadn't been sooner! No problems with the pricing, only paid 15 baht per person for a songthaew up to the main area and my Thai wife paid the same.

Inside the cave temple was resplendently bathed in green luminescence with natural light from the cave-top mixing with the draft of incense smoke. A giant sleeping Buddha led the way to a chedi prang in the second room which also had a beautiful light awning creating a magnificent space inside. Clearly a lot of renovations have been done including a new floorway plus work on the many buddhas inside. The monkeys outside were no bother to anyone. To sum up a must-see when passing through Petchaburi, it will only take around an hour to visit.

Took a tuk tuk (15 bahts) to the top of the cave - can walk it, but watch out for the monkeys. Inside the caves, renovation work being done - don't bother about getting blessing from monk - it will cost you - nice inside though - lots of steps to get into the cave.

This is a really beautiful place, and an uncommon temple ! It worth the way! Especially when the sunlight is getting through the cave, magical!

Very poorly maintained buildings and nothing really special. However you get to see some beautiful views. Moreover, the price for farangs is 200 THB (7 USD), Thais only pay 20 THB (0,70 USD) which in my opinion is racist as at many sights throughout Thailand. While up on the hill beware of the monkeys, they might charge you when they spot any food.

When we visited the temple, there were a lot of constructions going on, so we couldn't see everything fully. The temple is not that big. It adds a nice touch that it is in a cave, but besides that and a couple of buddhas, there is not that much to see. If you want to visit the cave, make sure that you combine it with for instance a visit to Phra Nakhon Kiri- it is in the neighborhood and makes the trip to this area more worthwhile.
