It seems a lot of reviews here are actually reviewing the Tiger Cave Temple in Krabi, which created some confusion prior to visiting! I was expecting over 1000 steps, but this was not the case. This Tiger Cave Temple is about a 30 minute drive from the River Kwai Bridge. There are very steep steps to the top, but they number only about 150. There is another walk up to the right, where the steps are not quite as steep. Alternatively, there is a paid trolley you can take to the top, although it was not working the day we attended.
Certainly this temple is worth a visit. The steps are manageable (even in heat) and give way to beautiful views over the rice fields as well as the stunning architecture of the temple itself. There is a small shop at the top for drinks or souvenirs, there are also toilets at the ascent. (Many more shops are on the roadside opposite the car park)
We went in the morning and it was moderately busy, but most larger tour groups seemed to be arriving as we were leaving. Enjoyable morning out, probably only allocate a couple of hours max to this activity though.

This is a beautiful temple and well worth visiting. There is a huge golden buddha and lots of different temples. You can climb up to the top of one and be rewarded with splendid views. Very serene and beautiful.

The temple is on the hill. After we had parked our car, we decided whether to climb up 157 steps steep stairs or to pay 10 baht each for a cable car (and we chose the latter). At the top of the hill, we saw a stunning panoramic view of the greenish rice field and Mae Klong river with mountain background. Moreover, there are several elegant architectures including the biggest Buddha image of Kanchanaburi. We also entered into the remarkable 9 storey orange octagonal pagoda. Ones may climb a spiral staircase to the top of the pagoda to worship Buddha relics brought from India. After enjoyed the fresh air and gorgeous architectures, we walked down the hill to visit the tiger cave. Finally, we worshipped a mummified body of Luang Por Chuen which is preserved in the glass coffin in the hall near the cave.

In view of my great age I felt a little daunted by the very steep staircase leading to temple proper - the ground area being guarded by a series of fearsome looking plaster tigers. I need not have worried - there is what seems to be a pretty ancient cable car which efficiently takes you to the top at the reasonable price of ten Baht (my ticket actually showed 15 Baht and covered the return trip as well).
There's a lot to see at the top apart from the view of the surrounding countryside. An enormous Buddha shaded by a half stupa, a couple of other well maintained buildings one a many roofed Chinese style tower.

On holidays, I go to pay homage to monks with my family. Arriving in Kanchanaburi, the first stop we have to visit is the Tiger Cave Temple. Important Buddhist places for a little luck The parking space in the temple is quite small. It is recommended to park at Wat Tham Khao Noi next to it and walk.
The place of worship is the main Buddha image. to go up the stairs quite high But the temple has a service for going up and coming back and forth. Only 10 baht per person, you can get on the cable car. But on the way down, I want to try the stairs. I got another atmosphere. private monk We can only stand and pay respects nearby because there are quite a lot of people at the worship point. This just filled my heart.

Wat Tham Suea is not far from my house. can travel easily The path up to the temple is 100 steps of stairs, making it a bit tiring to walk up. But there is a sleigh that can sit up but have to pay money. The view above is very good. can see the view far away The wind blows cold all the time The temple area is spacious. And beautiful, clean, around the temple area, there are many cafes. There is a big Buddha statue located in a very beautiful landmark.

Wat Tham Suea is located in Tha Muang District, Kanchanaburi Province, what catches the eye of tourists who visit the temple. To pay respect to the relics, which is the vastness of the temple and the largest Buddha image in the posture of giving blessings in Kanchanaburi Province. beautiful amulet with gold mosaic On arrival at the top I found the freshness of the cool wind blowing. and strong Looking downward, we saw a verdant rice field. There is also a Chedi Ket Kaeo Prasat. The whole chedi is brick-colored, divided into several layers, each tier enshrining many different Buddha images, up to the top floor enshrining the Buddha's relics brought from India, and there are also various viharas. Pay your respects to the Buddha image and admire the beauty of the murals inside. After watching all around, go down. downstairs to enter the tiger cave It is a small cave at the foot of the hill below. Inside enshrines a birthday amulet and sells sacred objects.
