About Tiger Cave Temple, Krabi

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. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Krabi itinerary 3 days.

Tiger Cave Temple, Krabi Reviews

  • It's quite to hard get on top 🔝, there is 1260 steps and height of some steps was at level of my knees. But the view is PERFECT 👌! Get on top take about 30 minutes (if you're in good physical condition 😁). Bottle of water 💦 is highly recommended. At the top you can find drinkable tap water but you know what other saying about drinking tap water in Thailand. This was my best experience in Krabi!

  • Tiger Cave Temple is a Buddhist temple in northeast of Krabi. It is well known for the tiger paw prints in the cave, tall Buddha statues and the strenuous flight of stairs to reach the temple. You need to visit the temple early in the morning or late afternoon. It is quite a challenge since there are 1000 steps and the climb is quite steep. It is a tough walk up especially with the heat, but the views at the top are amazing with beautiful panoramic views and worth it. As there is a small shop on the top of the mountain, I recommend to carry lots of water. Beware of monkeys and leave them alone! A must visit place in krabi. Really worth it.

  • I've been here 3 times. It's very challenging. Well for me it was. Stunning view from the top. There's toilets on site and a convenient store at the temple. Also there are a few shops just outside the temple where you can grab food and drinks. Women will be asked to cover up if wearing skimpy clothing. Watch out for the monkeys. Highly recommend to take a drink with you when you go up. It can get very hot and sweaty. But it will be worth it. Definitely worth a visit if you're ever in Krabi. Highly recommend.

  • To reach there u have atlst 1230 stairs which is quite challenging but its worth it. U can see d beautiful n breathtaking view from there. In this temple u will see the statue of Buddha and lord Ganesha also

  • Tiger cave name after the cave below the mountain when about 50 years ago a pair of tiger stay inside. The mountain is challenging it takes like 40min to reach the top. The view up there is nice but a bit warm. Remember to bring along sunglasses and hat. For ladies no shorts of skirt allowed.
