Wat Kaew Korawaram

Wat Kaew Korawaram, also known simply as Wat Kaew, is the largest Buddhist temple within Krabi Town and one of most prestigious in the entire region, though not as famous as the Tiger Cave Temple located outside the city. Perched on a hill overlooking Krabi downtown, the temple dates back to 1887, when 200 families settled at Baan Pak Nam, which was the name of city at that time, and a community of monks sprang up and prospered. The main access to Wat Kaew is off Maharaj Road, just opposite Soi 6. The majestic staircase leading to the 2,500sqm terrace on which the temple stands, is lined with magnificent statues of Nāga, the fascinating Hindu deity with the body of a serpent. At the top of the stairs you will find the large temple complex featuring white walls and unusual dark blue tiled-roofs, usually the roofs of Buddhist temples in Thailand are coloured in red and gold. Wat Kaew’s ordination hall is very bright with open windows on all sides and features a red ceiling as well as splendid paintings on the light blue walls. It houses a large golden Buddha statue and some precious Buddha relics. The original ordination hall of Wat Kaew is right opposite the actual temple, and nowadays hosts The Krabi Contemporary Art Museum. On the temple terrace, you will find Wat Kaew Holy Amulets & Souvenir Shop, as well as food and drink stalls. The temple is open daily from Tuesday to Sunday from 10.00 till 17.00.Read More
