  • Beautiful temple to visit with wonderful views. Quiet area, not touristy. 1.5 hours from Ao Nang or from Khao Sok.

  • Came here during the bus tour. At the top of the mountain leads the serpentine, road connects all parts of the temple complex. Wat Bang Riang, one of the largest and most beautiful complexes in the South of Thailand. It includes the main temple building Rat Uppatham Tha height of more than 100 meters, at the foot of the mountain at the bottom are Golden Buddha statue with snakes and a statue of Guanyin, the goddess of mercy (Guan Yin), as well as the room where the monks meditate. The construction of the complex began at the behest of the King of Thailand Rama 9 in 1986 year. From the square up to the temple leads quite a steep climb from two sides surrounded by sculpted images of the snake Naga. The courtyard of the temple is decorated in traditional Thai style, and here you can see different mythical creatures elephant trjohglavogo Jeravana, jakshasov and bird Garuda. From the courtyard you can enter the Chedi where the relics of the Buddha. Chedi located on a high Hill, so from there offer excellent views of the statue of the seated Buddha and Quan Yin statue against the backdrop of the surrounding mountains and banana plantations.

  • The temple complex is very nice and offers to have a great view on a huge Buddha statue and a Chinese statue. The paintings in the Interior of the temple are beautiful and the temple is designed in great detail. Great!

  • Just short of 5 stars for mine (but not much). Perched high on a small mountain and offers great views back down towards the Phang Nga delta. Very quite on our visit and extremely peaceful. As far as Wats go this is standard fair but in very good condition and the extreme peacefulness makes it a must visit. Coffee vendor a bit average - 60 baht for an under-sized serve and indeed not that good.
  • Nice place with an amazing viewpoint. Not so many tourists (no Chinese, can you imagine?).
  • Best recommended place for visiting when arrived at Phang-nga A beautiful temple with a mountain view
  • Impressive temple on a hilltop with great view over the valley including big figures on a hillside nearby. Great flowers, like a wonderful garden in every detail. Walk the stairs end enjoy.
  • This is the main temple visited in Phang Nga. All the tours from Khao Lak will offer this. Definitely worth a trip.
