The cave where once Tigers used to live is now the temple of Kuan Yin- the Goddess of Compassion. Locals and tourists come here to pray to the huge statue that looks down from a Chinese-style pagoda constructed here. Keeping the Buddhist ideology alive, human skeletons are kept to remind visitors of the impermanence of life.
The Golden stupa with a platform that overlooks Krabi is the highlight of the place. The whole place is loved for its natural surroundings and is a good way to explore the Buddhist culture in Thailand while you get away form the hustle-bustle of the city life.
The place also has a Vipassana center where you can see monks meditate in the forest.

Tiger Cave Temple, Krabi Reviews - Write a Review
Great spot, quite a tough climb up steep steps but that's the point. Bring water, you can refill at the top. I was at the top during a thunderstorm so low visibility and raining, I still loved it! On a clear day the views would be spectacular. When you return to the bottom be sure to visit Wonderland and the Tiger Cave before leaving. Beware the monkeys, they look amazing but will try to grab any bags, food or gadgets you have.
It is a nice place for sight seeing and visiting a Buddhist temple. It has a mountain of 1260 steps you can climb for an amazing view.
1,300+ steps is pretty challenging and steps size and distance each one is not regular. The view is worth it, however it was a positive bonus that it rained when I went. The tiles are slippery though when raining.
Awesome Temple, many buildings under construction, but men very friendly and positive, a lot of monkeys make scared my girlfriend (it's good)
Awesome! Amazing! Breathtaking view! Tackle the stairs and you won't be disappointed.
