Cave temple of Wat Cha-Am Khiri

Храм Cha Am Khiri, Ча-ам The Temple Of Cha-Am Khiri

This wonderful cave temple is located just a few kilometres from the centre of Cha am. In our opinion, this is one of the most wonderful places near the resort, and it is a must see. There is almost always quiet, no crowds of tourists, and even locals.

The Shrine includes several buildings and two caves. They are very small, and rather similar to the recesses in the rock, but very interesting. As usual, they are Buddha statues and small pagodas, but in the upper cave houses and the footprint of the Buddha. To find the cave you need to climb the steps up the hill.
