Selfie Heaven
Oct 2019
Recently completed this is one impressive temple. It appears almost indian while incorporating Thai buddhist aspects. Everywhere you go there were Thais and tourists taking photos of themselves near the artwork. Entrance is 50 baht for tourists which i felt was not an issue. Because of the size of the place, even with some thai buses arriving, at no stage did it feel crowded or rushed. Definitely worth a visit if you in the area.

One stop is not enough

The ultimate religious action worthwhile, the worship of Guangzhu, which is very expansive, should be seen during the morning or afternoon because of the rather hot noon.

Finished!
Jan 2019 • Friends
Just came back from it. Inside and outside the main area is finished now!
They still continue working, and changes are coming fast! On weekends busloads with Thai people come to visit: organised by villagers, bring a monk with them. Many from area Nakhon Sitamarat. Interesting to see that families donate the robe and go around the main Buddha statue after praying with one of the available monks. On this Sunday we saw every 15 minutes new groups , maybe 10 at the time, going around with the orange robes/cloth.

The paintings are extremely detailed. The colours match, the main Buddha sits high above the people, wall decorations very colourfull & detailed. Garden is clean, green and in perfect condition.

The hight might be 75 meters...
I would like to learn more about this temple. If I find out, will tell here. (I live nearby in Manora Garden, Phangnga.)

Worth the visit: 30 minutes from Phangnga or Ao Luk, 1 hour /1:15 from Krabi Ao Nang. A car is best, enough parking possibilities, good coffeeshop/snacks, very clean area. Since the main construction work is all finished, very easy to take beautiful pictures!

The sign says now: 50 baht for tourists...

Unbelieve Temple.

This is the most and amazing wonderful temple. The beauty is perfect. It is very valuable but the bathroom is not too much and
it was raining heavily the day we arrived.

Unusual Temple
Aug 2018 • Couples
Temple is unfinished and an unusual design looking very much more Indian in design than more traditional temples. Unusually as well not full of shops and fortune telling but still full of domestic tourists taking selfie after selfie. It about 50 minutes for on Krabi town and not worth the journey to be honest. It also plays used with rain.

Still under construction
May 2017 • Family
I am very sure that when this is complete, this will be a really grand temple and possibly one of Krabi's notable attractions. For now it looks quite impressive outside but much of this is still under construction. It is not very pleasant to walk around with all the construction going on especially during rainy season.
