The Wat Kiri Wongkaram is a picturesque white temple in Koh Samui that is distinct for its elegant white colour. The roof is built with vibrant tiles in green, yellow, and red colours. It houses some beautiful art, and its architecture is extraordinary.
The temple is easily accessible from Koh Samui’s main ring road; just 3.5 kilometres away.
Wat Kiri Wongkaram, Buddhist Temple & Mummified Monk, Koh Samui
Aside from this remarkable attraction within the wat, the temple grounds are worth exploring. It is maintained very well; with manicured gardens and pretty pathways. Numerous photo opportunities await you here, both in and out of the temple.
Compared to the other temples on the island, this one is less touristy; it offers an authentic experience that you don’t have to share with hoards of other travellers. And because of the unique mummified monk, you won’t find this kind of attraction in many other places (another Mummified Monk is located at Wat Khunaram).
Wat Kiri Wongkaram is open daily during daylight hours and is located along Nara Taling Ngam Road, Koh Samui. Admission is free.
