Attraction Details

Situated on a hill covering an area of some 1,320 acres, Wat Khao Sukim was built in 1966 by devout Buddhists with the objective to be used as a meditation venue. The expansive temple compound offers a peaceful haven surrounded by shady orchards. The temple also houses a large collection of religious items and valuable antiques donated by the public. On display are wax sculptures of over twenty Buddhist monks that are highly revered from Buddhists. In the temples, newly built Ubosot (ceremonial hall) contains mural painting created by Chakrabhand Posayakrit, National Thai Artist in Painting.
Opening hours: 8am-5pm
