  • Sacred place for locals. We did not like-a lot of unpleasant scenes depicted through sculptures. It is clear that they all edifying. But all this is unpleasant to contemplate.

  • We went from Karon m. taxi, also visited other places in the region in a day. The taxi driver wanted to have 4000 baht when he wanted to run to monkeytemple, but we also wanted to go to Wat Bang Riang, and thus the total 5000 baht (plus a thousand in drinking). Tham take pan is a different temple where one enters through a drakes mouth and goes a long way through the Dragon's stomach "Dragon bridge". Insert a coin in the box at the beginning then you can even sound effects. When you come out of the Dragon so you see a valley that seems to represent the afterlife for Buddhists who do not been nice. The temple is also called "heaven and hell". There are a multitude of statues that go through all kinds of plagues, from getting sawed right in deal to become living ätna of dogs and much worse things. The statues are old and worn but very imaginative performed. If you have preference for the morbid, it is absolutely worth seeing. After this dödsdal can go ahead on a small path to a large cave. Where it is shown by a monk. The cave is dark with a number of bridges over the precipice, you also get the balance on the edge between the steep slopes and quagmire as torch is recommended. After a long tough road reach an enlightened place with a couple of altar. On the way out of the cave, one can get the blessing and bracelets by the monk in Exchange for a small donation. A different and exciting destinations where we were the only "farang" this day.
