Wat Tham Khao Tao

Wat Tham Khao Tao is a larger temple in the village of Ban Khao Tao. This is a place where people still get excited to see farangs (People from the West) and there is a lot to see. The temple has a cave with Buddha images and more images are being raised right along the shoreline. Overlooking the village with itís many fishing boats is a huge Kwan Yin statue, a large standing Buddha image and another one, even bigger, was being build on the top of the mountain. One of the monks told me that former U.S. President Clinton visited here and enjoyed the same view a few years back.
