This is not a very impressive-looking temple from the outside. But when it has a gigantic half-buried statue of a golden Buddha, a temple doesn’t have to be impressive from the outside. There is a rather fantastical legend about the origin of the statue and of the temple, and you should get the locals to tell it to you. But you should know that this is thought to be one of the oldest temples on the island. There is also a small museum exhibit on site, which contains artefacts from the now extant mining industry that used to function here. All things considered a very intriguing little attraction right in the center of the island.
- The actual temple timings are from dawn to dusk.
- By Car
- Take a bus, tuk-tuk or a taxi to here.

Shrine of the half buried Buddha...place of clam and workship..museum was closed when went midday...so check the timings..ample car parking and it's just off the main highway..
Beautiful Wat, a must visit place in day time and past dust as well
I think wrong location. Hahaha
Nice, but doesn't meet the beauty of other temples in Thailand.
Genuine place, full of peace and calmness. We were not in time for the museum - check open timing if you're the museum type
