Attraction Details :
Wat Narayanikaram is located at Mu 3 Tambon Le, approximately 14 kilometres from Kapong District Office on Highway No. 401 (the Takua Pa – Surat Thani route), with a right turn of 2 kilometres to the temple. This is where replicas of Narayana (Rama) and Lakshamana, as well as the original Sida (Sita – consort of Rama) images are enshrined. The original Rama and Lakshamana images are now exhibited at the Thalang National Museum, Amphoe Thalang, Phuket. In addition, an inscription stone of 1,300 – 1,400 years old was unearthed on top of Khao Riang inside the temple’s precincts. These sculptures are related to the historical background of “Takola” (former name of Takua Pa) and the introduction of Indian culture into this region.
There are also other waterfalls in the district where local people usually pay a visit for relaxation including Namtok Saeng Thong, which is a small waterfall, and Namtok Hin Lat or Namtok Laeng Hin, a rocky waterfall with a clear stream.
