Wat Wanararm, Kuah

3.9
#2 of 8 in Historic Sites in Kedah
Wat Wanararm offers a peaceful and colorful setting where you can meditate or marvel at numerous Buddha statues and traditional architecture. The temple complex contains a landscaped garden with a fish pond, little pagodas, and prayer wheels, with eight stupas each representing a different Buddhist quality. The site also features a sizable white marble statue of the Goddess of Mercy, Kuan Yin, placed against the rocky hillside as if it's been carved directly out of it. Follow the path behind the statue to go up the hill and visit caves used for meditation. Before you visit Langkawi, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

  • If you would like to visit the temple by scooter or car, this incorrect on the map is drawn follow not the TripAdvisor site there. The temple is located close to Kuah on the left side when coming from the direction of Tanjung RHU beach. The temple is very quiet and far away. At the time, but working on a new building, but no longer interferes with. Behind the building there is a small garden with pond and various Buddha images, as well as a perfect look at the huge Buddha statue carved into the rock wall. If you close to there since, necessarily make a little detour, worth.

Where to stay in Langkawi

Langkawi Island offers by far the greatest number of accommodation options out of all 104 isles in the archipelago. Look for affordable and comfortable rooms in Kuah and the southwestern peninsula, where inexpensive hotels, hostels, and rental apartments draw many budget visitors. For a luxury experience, head to the surrounding islands, where private resorts charge high prices for more amenities and larger rooms.
