  • This place is located not far from Tong Sala, on the road in the direction of Haad Rin. Really liked the view. A quiet place. People engaged in meditation there. Liked it, nice to sit and relax! Cool.

  • the monastery is located on the vozvyšine between Central Pier and beach, where the full moon party. You can drive on a good road following the signs.

  • A small retreat leads to a small temple complex with beautiful statues and several temples. The views of the island is worth the small rise in any case!

  • Peaceful place! We spend 10 days there for the meditation retreat and it was a great experience. The nuns and monks were very welcoming and it was even no problem at all to have vegan food during the meditation retreat!
  • Peaceful little temple surrounded by forestry. They offer each month a vipassana meditation. The viewpoint is definitely one of the better spots in Phangan to see thesunset
  • Peaceful place
  • Such an interesting place, leaves mixed emotions. On the one hand, there is quiet, the houses stand monks or who lives here, novices and meditatory. The temple, again, old and cute. V′ûpojnt great and nowhere to scramble, benches in the shade. Two large parking areas. On the other hand, all these strange people, both from films about hippies. They have a meditation Center there, everyone has their own Buddha under a Bush, a person blissful, timetable, stolovka, talk ... Sectarians shorter:).
