Attraction Details

This is the most important and most revered Buddhist temple in Sangkhla Buri district, where Thai and Mon people live together peacefully. The temple was built to replace the previous temple which is now underwater. The story goes that the now deceased Luangpo Uttama monk moved all the whole Mon village, most of whom are stateless people, uphill to settle at the current location allocating plots of land for every family to live around the temple. One kilometer from the temple finds Chedi Buddhagaya that contains Lord Buddha’s relic locals and visitors come to pray for lucks and prospertity.

Opening hours: 8.00 am - 4.30 pm
