Wat Pha Sorn Kaew, Khaem Son

(4.8/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Visit one of Thailand's most striking temples at Wat Pha Sorn Kaew, a colorful structure built on a mountain peak. The temple features upwards of 5 million mosaic tiles and pottery items on the main pagoda and surrounding buildings. Next to the pagoda, a platform holds five images of Buddha surrounded by lotus flowers; look for the stained-glass pagoda in the gardens, too. Tourists do not regularly visit this attraction because there is no direct public transportation to it, but you can arrange for a private car to take you there. Remember to wear long pants and sleeves. Using our international travel planner, Khaem Son attractions like Wat Pha Sorn Kaew can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Don't miss this place. It is the beautiful, quaint and very unique Buddha image. I never seen any buddha image like this. Another side, the temple is also unique, walls are fragmented with small funny...  more »
  • A very beautiful temple. The Mid-Autumn Festival, a lot of people go up the narrow way, there is not much parking. If winters are cold with very beautiful photo shoot, casual HIG.

  • The location of the temple is already beautiful and constructions are very original. The white Buddhas of the main temple stand out beautifully in the blue sky. The other buildings are decorated with a multitude of earthenware objects, mosaics to superb colors. If you have time it is very friendly to the coffee "latte pino" which overlooks the site of the temple. The view is beautiful. For now the inside of the temple and of the ancillary building is empty. Anyway inaccessible at this time. In conclusion a beautiful excursion not to be missed.

  • Wow, this temple complex is absolute one of the finest looking temples of all of Thailand! If you are nearby, this is a "must see"! There is also food stalls around the complex, so you wont stay hungry. Enjoy this hidden gem! Greeting from Norway :)
  • Good views, startling architecture. Unfortunately at my visit 1/3 of the site was closed. Also local vendors inflating prices beyond what I would call "Farang acceptable". If your in the area pay a call if not leave it to another day.
  • Stunning temple. It's almost like a fairytale. The mosaic is so beautiful. We were very lucky cuz the new temple building with the 5 Buddha statue had just opened. So there were these big globes all around the temple where you can pray and stick some goldleaves on. I reckon this is one of the must see attractions in Petchabun. Also the whole area around the temple is so need as well. I am so glad we made a long stop here.
  • A MUST TO VISIT! Truly fascinating and great artwork. Temple is beautifully decorated with different type of beads, terracotta, bowls, plates, marble or anything that you could have thought of. It was a very hot afternoon, got my sun burn ;)
  • Very beautiful. If you come to Petchabura province and dont come to this place, regret it. This temple is just a masterpiece! Stunning!
