Wat Chaeng



Wat Chaeng like so many other Samui temples could be a peaceful place to wonder the grounds and take a breather on your journey round the island. Unfortunately local traffic has decided to use the grounds as a short cut from A to B. The peace is intermittent with motorbike and scooters passing by.

The main temple entrance has a big golden Buddha sitting in the Subduing Mara posture, guarded with two of the biggest Yak statues we've seen at Samui temples.

At the rear of the temple is a similar sized Phra Phrom (four-face Buddha), the Thai Buddhist version of the Hindu God, Brahma (the creator). On the left-hand side is Lord Shiva (the destroyer).

The brilliant white and gold Bot (most important temple) is one of the finest examples you'll find on Samui.

As per the norm, there are plenty of happy Soi dogs who'd love a 'hello' and belly scratch.

Wat Chaeng is on the main ring road as you exit Nathon town centre heading south, right opposite the Honda bike dealership.
