Wat Kaew Korawaram

Located on a hill that towers over downtown Krabi this temple dates back to 1887. It was at that time that 200 families decided to settle down along Baan Paknam home to the original Krabi Town, then named the Estuary Village. The temple was formed out of the initial compound built by monks who were the first settlers. The original building which stands in front of the present day Wat Kaew is home to the Krabi Contemporary Arts Centre. The temples golden terrace is accessed by climbing the exquisitely carved Staircase inlaid with intricate 'Naga' statues. Within are precious relics belonging to Lord Buddha, beautiful wall murals and vintage Buddha statues.


Wat Klong Thom

Home to a fine collection of artefacts such as bronze tools, ancient coins, pottery and decorative beads that are tipped to be over 500 years old; the temple is a must visit site for all culture buffs. Wat Klong Thom is just one of the places to visit when enjoying the wonders of the Andaman Coast; home to the Anantara Si Kao Resort and gorgeous sandy beaches Krabi is definitely a top tourist resort.


Wat Sai Thai

Wat Sai Thai may not be a proper temple but it is unique in the sense it offers a reclining Buddha situated right under a cliff. The place is found besides the main road in Ao Nang; little golden Buddha's are placed around the place which is shaded by large tree. It most certainly is a scenic place to stop during your travel to Krabi.


Wat Thep Rattan

If you love travelling off the beaten path and rustic environs then do visit this temple. The place is home to a small collection of monks as well as a huge cave which serves as a temple. A second cave full of harmless bats allows one to enter for exploring. The whole place is located between scenic limestone karsts and is well worth a visit.
