Laem Sor Pagoda Map & Address, Koh Samui
Nestled alongside the Laem Sor Temple is the beautiful Laem Sor Pagoda, which has some of the most picturesque scenery on Koh Samui island. The pagoda has been an important shrine on this island for a number of years and Buddhists come here to worship and pray.
The pagoda’s structure and architecture attract many history buffs and when you visit, you will see some impressive sculptures and amazing statues. The pagoda looks spectacular with its countless yellow tiles and golden projections and is a special place for those who appreciate traditional Thai architecture.
The pagoda is very old; however, it has been beautifully restored. A recent restoration project has been completed where many of the pagoda’s glazed tiles were cleaned and replaced.
Whilst visiting the pagoda, walk to the small meditation forest (which is beautifully maintained) and take some time to sit and meditate. Adjoining the forest, there is a man-made lagoon, lined with mangrove trees. Many monks and pilgrims come here on Buddhist holy days.
