Wat Tham Seu Temple is located close to Bangkok in Kanchanaburi in Thailand. It is also known as the Tiger Temple. Located on the top of the Muang Chum mountain, the temple which was built in 1973 can be reached by climbing over 100 steps. It houses an iconic statue of the Buddha in a beautiful temple complex built in the pagoda style. Since devotees and most tourists start coming to the temple around midday, you might want to plan an early morning trip to explore the temple at length and enjoy its scenic beauty. The view of the city below is stunning as seen from the temple.
Wat Tham Seu Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful temple with amazing views. I went the day after songkran so it was very busy with Thais coming for a bit of good merit. Definitely worth walking to the top floor of the temple as the views are great. Highly recommended.
It’s a very nice temple with a great view if you go to the top. I love the experience of walking through the 200 steps going down from the temple.
great view and there is a tram to take you up if you're not a fan of stairs. very hot in summer indeed.
The Buddha statue, seated in the posture of giving blessings, is covered with gold mosaic and protected by an unusual shell-like structure. You will get a good view on top of mountain like a expand fields. Enjoy your trip with filling up a good memory. Cheer!!!😉😉😉
The view behind the temple was tranquil countryside and in front was a nice view of the villages along the river. The temple itself was peeling and had a tacky vibe. The tiger cave was also weirdly touristy. You can also see the preserved body of one of their past lead monks.
