Visit Tiger Cave Temple
Tiger Cave Temple (Wat Tham Sua) is a world-famous Buddhist shrine. It is located 3 km from Krabi town in southern Thailand. This shrine dates back to 1975. The major highlight of this temple is the tiger’s paw prints in the limestone caves. Legend has it that a huge tiger used to live in the temple and had marked the cave.
It is a meditation centre and also has archaeological significance. The temple is situated inside limestone caves and tourists are required to climb a total of 1237 steps to reach the summit. The hike is difficult but once you reach the top, you are welcomed by the clean air and beautiful nature beyond. At the terrace, a giant golden Buddha statue is situated. It is advised to dress respectfully, bring water and snacks for the hike and remove any precious jewellery which could be taken by the monkeys.
