Wat Ratcha Thammaram

Wat Ratcha Thammaram

Wat Ratchathammaram Tempel / Koh Samui Thailand overflown with my drone. Maret, Surat Thani Province, Thailand Koh Samui is home to many old Buddhist temples and Chinese shrines, including two impressive religious landmarks: Samui Big Buddha - a massive 15-metre seated Buddha overlooking the sea on the northeastern coast and, in the same area, Wat Plai Laem, a superb temple featuring a striking white 18-arm statue of Guanyin, the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion. See below the most notable temples and shrines to be visited in Koh Samui. Wat Sila Ngu (aka Wat Ratcha Thammaram) is a Buddhist temple located along the Ring Road, 200m before Rocky’s Boutique Resort when heading toward Lamai. Sila Ngu translates into ‘stone snake’ in English, and you can see many stone-carved snakes all around the compound. This long-established temple may look standard and slightly run-down at first sight, but it has recently been upgraded with the addition of a magnificent large new building realised in deep red clay. This building adds to the mysterious yet serene atmosphere of the temple as the large room it houses is pretty sombre and its walls are entirely carved with scene of the Buddha’s life. The seaside location of this temple also permit splendid views to Samui east coast/www.kosamui.com
