Wat Koh Wanaram (also Wat Wanararm, also Luang Por Khun) – in our opinion the most interesting Thai Buddhist temple on Langkawi Island. The" highlight " is the statue of the goddess of mercy Kuan Yin, carved directly into the marble rock. Rather, it has not yet been carved, and for several years it has been in the works, because the temples are built on donations, and there are not so many Buddhists on the island. In addition to the statue, the territory of the temple is interesting for its landscaped park with ponds, streams, bridges, beautiful plants and even gazebos. There are also eight stupas dedicated to different states of the soul. Wat Koh Wanaram is located a little off the road and away from populated areas, so it is always quiet and peaceful, and you can spend about an hour walking around the territory.
Nearby is an orchid farm, their visits can be combined.
🕐 Working hours: during daytime.
💵 Entrance fee / tickets price: free.
🚶 How to get there: The Temple is located in the West about two kilometers from the center of Kuah (on the map of Langkawi), slightly off the main road. You can get here by taxi or rented transport. On the main road of Jalan Ayer Hangat street there is a sign for the temple and the orchid farm, after turning on the sign you need to drive another two hundred meters and turn again (left) on the sign. Transport can be left at the site near the temple for free.
