  • Came by car from Krabi, so how could not resist and not see it. The most original of the difficulties us churches. Places an eerie, sometimes misunderstood. At the entrance to the fountain with statues of five monks, in which bowls, representing wealth, beauty, happiness, development and health. If there is a coin, make your choice and throw a coin into the bowl. If you're lucky, you'll get something ask, according to your choice, just not entirely clear how its done. On the grounds of the monastic community. There are small shops where you can make a donation, buy food and drinks. Encountered monks from something highly rejoiced and started to smile, but did not engage in a dialogue. Not exactly intuitive sequence, but we went to the right, immediately hitting the zone where «inhabit» statues of ghosts. Ugly statues with ulcers, the heads of the people and animals that symbolize the ghosts, which become greedy and envious people after death haunt land hungry, unable to satiate themselves. Next, you will see the Dragon, widely opened mouth. Neither light nor Lantern we did not get. Taking into account the total darkness (the light from the flashlight on the phone) and bats, a journey inside the Dragon was a success. Coming out of a dragon on the other hand, you can get into the cave of Tapan. Something happened on that day and light in a cave just wasn't there. If you exit the cave and go down, you will see the Hell zone. The most spectacular part of it: with statues of punishment of sinners. Believe me, this is a must see. Paradise zone is represented by a number of Hindu deities, including Akilandeshvari (one of the incarnations of Parvati) riding a crocodile and a giant head of Shiva. Climbing the stairs to mount, you can get to the observation deck. Awesome Church! Is required to attend.
