Wat Khunaram (Mummified Monk), Ko Samui
(2.8/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
Stop by Wat Khunaram (Mummified Monk) to see the mummified body of Luang Pho Daeng, a prominent monk who died in 1973 while meditating. The monk's remains serve as an important reminder of the transience of human nature. One of the more unusual historical attractions available in the area, the temple draws foreign visitors interested in learning more about Buddhism. Instead of selling conventional souvenirs, the onsite shop takes a more holistic and spiritual approach, stocking goods such as holy water, coconut oil, and natural soaps.

  • A must-have on Koh Samui. Here, too, we have witnessed the local history. Glasses to put on JUST this monk is very questionable - no matter for what reasons.

  • We weren't particularly fascinated, deserves a visit two photos but without losing too much time

  • Seeing this with your own eyes is amazing. Definately recommended. And while there take the time to say a little thought and get your number and see qhat luck has in stall for you.
