The place is just stunning! The temple was built to honor King Rama IX for his 60-year of reign. The temple is up in the mountain, just next to the sea. You can see the seaview from the temple and while at the same time visit this amazing temple.

Very close to Wat ThangSai. You have to walk up to the hill for a little bit to get up there. But really worth.

One of the best designed and decorated modern temples we've seen in Thailand. There are steps up from the car park which can be hard work in hot weather
