We were travelling around Koh Samui by a motorcycle when we stopped here. It is quiet and authentic. If you are lucky a Buddhist monk will bless you and give you a lucky bracelet. If it happens don't forget to give a small donation. Please,...More

Wat Kiri Wongkaram houses the second of Samui's famous mummified monks. Whilst still interesting, the presentation and surroundings are not nearly as good as that of Wat Khunaram, the temple for Samui's other mummified monk. This monk was called Luang Pho Poo Rerm, was abbot...More

Very traditional temple, with its own mummified monk. Worth while visiting if you want a far less touristy experience.

A bit quiet Buddha Temple. For 2 minutes walking distance from side entrance, there is a place to view brilliant sunset by the beach.

If you are in the area then you can visit it but definitely not worth to make a special visit and there is not a lot to do or see

The Temple isnt so popular like for example Wat Khunaram, which makes the temple very special. Its very quiet and you can feel that there is something special in the air. You will get quiet calm and relaxed, or at least we were after a...More

Unpretentious and interesting...we stayed opposite the compound in the quiet village of taling gnam....the site has many buildings some with a need for care but that just adds to its charm..and check out the mummified monk🙏

You don't find the western visitors here. In fact you don't find many visitors at all. The dear old mummified monk is more like an old friend now as we visit him every year. The wat is old and not fancy. There is a crematorium...More
